"Desert Lavender" - today's pastel

9 x 12 pastel on grey Canson
You may recognize this.  I did it in watercolor pencil not long ago.  I had a few hours today to paint and just grabbed the photo and a piece of paper....(my un-favorite paper) and figured I'd just practise.  Well, I'm pretty happy with it!  Maybe I'm finally making friends with this paper!

Carolyn, I recognized this scene immediately! Wow!
So interesting, what paper you are use, Carolyn? :-) White or another? I love to paint on color paper, especially on grey shades of other colors :-) or brown, calm green :)

Fantastic picture! :-))))
