Another pastel study! I hadn't planned it this way, but the pastels have been a great way to work out ideas on paper before proceeding to a larger painting. This one was challenging. It is not worked from photos, but rather from memories of the many country roads of rolling fields I've traveled. The drama of the sky and the color it produces is what I hoped to express.

I think this turned out rather nicely - I like the feeling it has. Openess - I can breath.
