Arizona Cactus

February 15, 2017

IMG_0058.JPGSaw this cactus on a trail walk “the loop” in Sedona, Arizona this past year. Just loved the colors, shadows, and scenery. I wanted to paint this and decided to do a pastel with a watercolor under painting. I am pleased with how it turned out!

This is a pastel painting I did after recently visiting the Myakka River State Park in FL. It was from a photo I took from an area looking out over the water. I actually did two pastel paintings of this scene, one a little more detailed and one a little less detailed. I cannot decide which I prefer.Myakka River State Park

Lemon Bay at DuskThis was a pastel painting I created of Lemon Bay at dusk from a photo I took from my home. I loved the colors of the sky and reflection on the water in the bay.
