I began this pastel recently during some quiet time when I was tending the Workhouse Building 9 gallery desk. It's from a picture I always have with my pastel equipment. I took it at Green Spring Garden Park and I've painted it several times before. This one is on black Canson paper, so it has a increased vibrancy and shimmer against the black. Thanks to my Liz Haywood-Sullivan workshop experience and working on black, which I hope to do more often.
