Hesitate to even post this as it's so beginnerish, but I did want folks to know I'm still plugging away, trying to learn and have some fun. Took a photo of some great red rocks near my brother's house in Kanab, Utah. I've tried painting this in watercolors a couple of times--failures. Yesterday I was fooling around with some pastels (I only have 14 colors) and decided to give this a try. It was such a gorgeous day here I moved everything out onto the patio and worked on this in the sun and breezes (so as not to choke to death on pastel dust). I have a lot to learn about pastels!! I think I need pastel pencils, not sticks, as I can't get a sharp edge to save me and the blurry edges frustrate me. At any rate, I thoroughly enjoyed doing it on such a beautiful day.
