An artistic diversion

I think I got tired of working on the watercolor.  So I put it away for a day or two so I can look at it and get inspired again with fresh eyes.

In the meantime, I started a little pastel.  This is a coastal scene - boats - water - something I hardly ever do!  I am such a landlubber, but I do love looking at the sea too.  West Coasters will recognize this (maybe).  We are on a ferry that is taking us over to Catalina Island.  It is still taking me a while to get back into the groove with pastel.  I feel like I'm mincing around, starting very light until I find my way.

I love the impressionist feel of this little painting!
