Sendero - Pastel Painting, Landscape

Right around the corner from our home is an area in the Loblolly pines with some old paths and roads.  These pines are so beautiful and survived the Bastrop Fire in 2011.  The painting was in the Austin Pastel Society Juried Members show. 
Sendero - Pastel on Pastelbord
11 x 14 inches 

This painting is sold and in a private collection in Bastrop.

Excellent feel of light here Jo, especially with the gold and then contrasting violet in the shadows.

Hi Mary, Thank you so much for the compliment. It is exciting to use complements. :)

Jo, what a beautiful painting. Love the colors of gold and violet, beautiful greens as well. With the weather so cold and everything so gray outdoors, this is truly a treat to behold.

Joan, thank you so much. This is a beautiful area with many painting opportunities. :)
