Living in cold Riga, I guess i am missing the summer badly! This is a 20 by 30 pastel painting on Fisher400 sandpaper. I try to use many colours so that its interesting. I hope i am not doing that ridiculously. C&c will be appreciated.

I like the overall feel and especially the sense of light in the open field. Bob

Hi Pat, thanks for your comment. I used Fisher400 art grade sandpaper. I recommend this paper, it is really good. It is not available in my city either, I get it online.
I didn't use too many layers (maybe 2or 3) but I did use a watercolour under painting. My pastels are a not just one brand and I don't have too many pastels. I have a mixture of faber castle, Koh-I noor, Sennelier and Rembrandt.

Beautiful. I find myself drawn to landscapes with purples in them and I really like your use of blue and purple in this painting. Pam

Very nice. Love the color palette & the looseness. Also the overall "feel" - breezy & warm. (I am missing summer as well). Well done.

If you want to warm up, just look at your painting. All those greens and yellows look great with the splashes of blue and violet.
