Just a Little Wave 7x10

Just a Little Wave 7x10 inches Pastel and Acrylic on Arches Cold Press

This is a scene from my two years in California. It is a nice spot at MontaƱa De Oro near San Luis Obispo. I use to show my works in a gallery in San Luis Obispo called the LA Santa Fe Gallery. As I was looking at some old slides and pictures I began to want to be back at the Ocean so the next best thing is to paint it.

Wichita Mountains - Cliff

Wichita Mountains - Cliff 5x7 inches Pastel on Arches Sold

On this one I began to work on color contrast. Using a triadic chord of blues, yellows-orange, and red-oranges to makes this pastel painting more vibrant.

First One

Wichita Mountains - Twilight 5x7 inches Pastel on Arches Sold

This is a pastel painting on Arches watercolor paper. The rough texture worked very nicely for the rocky terrain. This was an image from my archive of slides that I took while day hiking in the Wichita Mountains near Lawton Oklahoma. I will be doing several more from for a short series.
