"Melting Ice on Adirondack Lake"

 11zx14 pastel on Richeson board

At 70 degrees today, you can just imagine how the ice is melting on the lakes around here.  Adirondack Lake is not a very deep lake and usually the ice breaks up a bit faster here.  The water is seeping through and soon the ice will be all gone.  This was the first pastel I did this morning.  I'm eagerly awaiting for my Schminke pastels "English Rose" color to come in the mail.  It's the perfect color for the hills and trees at this time of year.  A very lovely light rose color.  Anyway, without it, this was the best I could do!
