Sandia Mountain Vista

"Sandia Mountain Vista" (pastel, 12x18in)  click here to bid

This was my first painting the second day of Margaret Evan's workshop. The light was so fantastic in the morning that I didn't want to wait until after her demo, so I set up in a hurry and got going on these mountains, listening and taking peeks at her demo now and then, and working through on this one before the light changed too much.

I'm really happy with the mountains, and I'm really happy with the scrub-land, but I sort of feel like they belong in separate paintings because of the difference in texture. Although this was pretty close to how I saw it all.
