Spring II


9×12 original pastel on sanded paper

I had fun painting the branches because the lighting was perfect.  I shaped them with rounded strokes of pastel, part dark, part light.  The blossoms are from my friend’s orchard and they were destined to become delicious peaches that she would share with me.  So, not only would I get to paint these trees, I would get to eat what they produced a few months later.
