"Old Lava Exposed"

"Old Lava Exposed" 11 x 14 pastel on board

This is a painting I did recently at Silver Lake, California.  The lake was very low due to the drought.  One cove of this lake has an old lava flow that is now exposed.  I took many photographs at the many rocky islands emerging out of the cove.  Elsewhere around the lake there are massive granite boulders.  It was my first time visiting this lake and I was enchanted!

This painting was essentially done on location, but I added a little more richer color and definition in areas at home in the studio.
