We have a beautiful summer this year.So, I felt like painting fields under the sun.
I've tried to be looser and bolder with color.I 've chosen the subjets with as less drawing as possible as I just wanted to play with my sticks.;)
So much fun !

The first one is on Mi teintes ,60 x50 cm.
The second on Pastelcard, same size.
The third on Canson Mi Touch,30x 40 cm.
C&C welcome.

Love your colors and your layering! These are lovely pieces! They make me want to go hiking in them.

The first one is my favorite, it glows with light and color! Oh, to be so talented....

Lovely rich colours - the first one says Cezanne to me, not sure if it's the palette or those cypress trees...either way, they're all striking :)

I can't choose a favourite. I really like them all. Bright vibrant colours so beautifully put together a true taste of summer!

My favorite is the first one, but I think you did a fine job with all of them.

All very lovely. Agree with the majority though - the top one is spectacular.
