I haven't done a miniature in quite a long time. This is only 3"x2". If you have never done one before, they're a little tricky to do in pastel. This is Haystack Rock on Cannon Beach, Oregon. Used a few pastel pencils, but mostly done with Great Americans, and a few harder brands.

The first photo is the actual size, with the 2nd enlarged to show some of the detail.

it there. I bet this was fun to do.
