118. Parrottee in Pastel

Schminke soft pastels on Clairefontaine Pastelmat Paper,  9.5" x 12"
Here it is; I've added a ton of colour into the water and also to some of the sky which extends into the trees. I just needed some warmth and colour to eliminate the grey here in 'Blighty'. I have to say though, after such a dreary day yesterday, the sun came out today and it has made such a difference! Anyway, what do you think?

I may well add more colour to the dark passages of water - same tones but more colour. Watch this space.

B&W check to see if tones work


  1. Gorgeous!! Love the warm colours and the composition with the waves leading the eye into the distance. A very tranquil scene and a welcome sight for those who are weary of winter. xxx
