Begun en plein air at Burke Lake, this is a water float pastel underpainting in which I sought a more abstract and angular interpretation.

Initially, I used light colors, so the chalk separated and floated a bit much, but I was able to get in plenty of color over that, despite the rules about darker pastel over light not covering completely.

Using textured surfaces certainly helps.

I appreciate how energizing, yet tranquil, this little painting is.
