CO High Country - Finished

"CO High Country" 11 x 14 Pastel on Rust Colored Sanded Paper

Finished just before the deadline for Studio Atelier's Monthly Challenge! I really had fun with this one, keeping it very loose and colorful. I hope to do more landscapes in this fashion, using the scribble stroke with NuPastels. The only soft pastel was a dark purple.

Cindy, I am just loving your pastel pieces... this one looks very realistic when I step back, yet close up you can see all the wonderful loose strokes of color you mention. Very cool.

Those strong verticals and horizontals give it much strength in the composition. I want to explore it evermore!

Beautiful Cindy! This makes me want to strap on cross country skis and head down that inviting path!
