No. 21, 30 Landscapes in 30 Days

Lone Tree

With this painting, I used a piece of gold metallic mat board, coated with clear gesso to give a good tooth for the pastels. When I first saw this tree I thought it was covered in birds, but on closer inspection, it turned out to be covered in pine cones!

pastel painting of a lone tree against a pink sky

Walk This Way

In this painting, the pine that stands sentinel along the path is straight and tall. Its lower branches undulate toward the light and it seems to point my way forward. I love the strata in the background, a low cloud bank creeping upward, blue, then pink, then blue again. A mist rises in front of a dark band of pines, silhouetted against the brightening sky.
