This is right up the road from where I live. It's a spectacular view. I perched on a milk crate with a drawing board in my lap and worked on this early last week in the late afternoon. My order of Mount Vision pastels had arrived and I was trying them out for the first time. They're creamy, but not quite as luxurious as Sennelier pastels.
I did this small, pastel last week in a field right off Rt. 57 in Mansfield. The colors look a bit more intense on my screen than the original piece. I put it in the linen mat and thought that it complimented the colors well. I'm going out this afternoon. It's hot, but the humidity is gone.
This is a landscape that I did in pastels in Harmony, New Jersey last summer. It's a beautiful, peaceful spot. The name really fits the place. I decided to make a print of it the other day and mount it on this block of wood.
I just added these to my Etsy shop. I love doing food illustrations and I think the prints of these turned out particularly well. The original are all pastels done on Mi-Tientes paper. Thanks for looking!
