It's been awhile since I've been able to post any new work. We've been traveling to New York and our cabin in the Adirondacks and I'm finally settled in and able to paint.
This week I gave a beginner watercolor class at The Hedges, a resort on Blue Mountain Lake. Usually I demo before we start painting and this was the view from Blue that I chose to paint. Before the class was over, I decided to add my pastels to the watercolor painting I had started. It was a lot of fun to hear the student's comments once the pastel was applied. I decided to leave the mountain and some of the trees in watercolor alone. I liked the effect. I hope it spurs my students to try pastel over watercolor.
