Lower Slaughter in the Cotswolds

I just finished this pastel this week. I used a photo I had taken while we walking along a path named the Warden's Way. The section we traveled ran from Upper Slaughter, through Lower Slaughter, and then to Burton on the Water. The picture was done on Wallis sanded paper using mostly Pan Pastels with some Nu-Pastels, and touches of Unison and Rembrandt. The size is 12 by 18 inches.

At the end of the first session.

The finished piece.

I love the light in this painting. Beautiful!

Thank you, Sunshine. It was the light I was trying to capture so you zeroed right into my focus.

Oooh, very nice!
