Yellow Trees

Pastels again. I like the way the pastels feel on the paper, especially the softer ones (they're all the "soft" or chalky pastels). And I like the way it's so easy to add light over dark, although I still tend to work from light to dark, a watercolor habit, rather than dark to light as one would with oils. That's probably why I get all the white speckles in the painting which you see better if you click on this painting to the right to see the larger version. I may do this again with some sort of underpainting. This painting is done from a couple of photos I took while walking the dogs.
