First Impressions

 
"Lupine Blast", 9 x 11, pastel on Canson Mi-Tientes paper.
 
It's good to be back painting even for short periods. I am slowly finishing up paintings I started during my last class. Here's the first one. It's about my first impression when I came upon a scene while hiking at Hensley Lake in Raymond some fifteen or so miles from where I live. I love this area. The hiking is easy and the views are gorgeous.
First impressions are an important part of a painting. My first impression when I came upon this scene was the beautiful, massave and pervasive color of the lupines on the hillside.
