The fog started to clear today so I headed down to one of the coastal lagoons and found this lonely old tree off by itself. I had to paint it...

9 x 12 pastel on Uart paper

FYI - Here's the underpainting:

Great work on the trees as usual Randy. The grass is really eye catching also with the flecks of purple throughout, and I like the way you used the darker shadow area under the tree to highlight the foreground grass. Very nice!

That's great Randy, nice to see the underpainting too.

Thanks, Rob. Thanks, Jim.

For some reason I couldn't get the white balance right on the camera so this is a little warmer and the colors are a bit off. Should probably try the other camera...
