Autumn Willows, 10" x 20" Sold

This pastel received a Merit Award at last weekend CNY Art Guild Show.

The reference photo is from Ley Creek, in Mattydale. vI took artistic license with the photo by creating a waterway (the foreground was totally covered by tall grasses) and changing the time of day from early afternoon to early evening. Even if the channel looks more like a wet path to you, I do not think it detracts attention from the focal area and the overall mood of the scene.

Donna, Thank you! Perhaps it was the cropping that made it work...
Hilda, I had to be creative with the colors in this scene because the reference photo was dull. I'm glad you like it! Thank you!
