Reflections in Autumn
Reflections in Autumn is a pastel painting of a quiet trail along a marsh at Iroquois Wildlife Refuge. The painting is true to the photo, taken while I was on a hike with my family and furry children. The marsh has a vegetation that offers a beautiful variety of reds in the fall. This is a great trail to spot turtles along the shore, and a few snakes too.
I used Nupastels, Blick pastels, and Mungyo. There are a few highlights with Mt Vision and Great American- just a few. The paper is Richeson's Unison Premium Pastel Surface, 140lb, Clay. 9x12
