Soft Light and Trees..Pastel..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews

I finished this one  late yesterday, it is just a small sketch, great fun to do these. I was experimenting with light and doing these small paintings very quickly, this one took around 15 minutes.

Working this fast, one can only go for the necessary elements, and not stay too long on details. A loose and spontaneous image is the result.

I used a little rubbing alcohol over the pastel underlay first. Then proceeded with my pastels once it was dry.

My surface here is Pastel Premier paper, which is a great surface for wet media as well.
