A Path To?

This time I used a very dark paper, which made the whole painting darker.  I wanted the pines to be dark to make a nice contrast with the grass and path, without the path being too bright and sticking out like a sore thumb.  I actually like this one, but after the last painting, anything would be an improvement.  

This is painted on 5 x 7 dark brown Art Spectrum Colourfix paper using Pan Pastels.  I used a reference photo from the Wet Canvas IRL.

Here is #17.  Thanks for looking. 



  1. This turned out nice Doug! You handle the Pan pasels so well, the grasses turned out especially well.

  2. Thanks, Chris. I am struggling with the grass in the latest painting. Maybe I am trying to reinvent the wheel. Keep it simple!
