Skyline Stands

In my quest to paint every stand of trees in Virginia, I present Skyline Stands, a soft pastel created from a picture of the Big Meadow section of Skyline Drive. I am very thankful as I paint in the winter to have sunny reference pictures I took myself. It means the colors and feel are in my eyes already.

This piece has a watercolor underpainting, as evidenced in the upper right sky and the lower grassy edge.
