I would like you to take a look at a pastel I have just completed.
Its painted with soft pastels and soft pastel pencils on Art Spectrum board.
It is 12x8, C&C very welcome. Will

I'm new to pastels so wouldn't dare comment on technique- looks great to me though!
I like your use of complentary colours in this piece- the violets in the sky really set off the yellow leaves to give a great vibrant effect. The addition of the tilted tree on the left also works well as a contrast to the straight verticals.

This is a beautiful harmonious painting, like Ryan said the complimentary colours really make this painting!
I love how the path leads the eye down to the thickness of trees, it is just lovely!

Will, this is truly beautiful! It has a very soft watercolour look to it that I love. The shadows on the path are very effective and the colours work beautifully.

Spectacular! The image and the title you've given it leads the imagination of the viewer to daydream about the path, who was on it ,and on and on :)

I really enjoy the straight vertical lines light and airy with the heavier lower horizontal lines following a ragged path through bumps and dips....nice contrast between the two.

The contrast of trees against sky is glorious! Beautiful piece.
