I’m continuing to work with pastels. This image was taken from a photo I took at the Herbs of Grace many years ago. I’m still trying to find a good ground to work on. This image is on gesso primed watercolor paper. All of the painting was a challenge, but I think the foliage was the hardest as it was so varied!
