Original Pastel Painting by Colorado Artist Margretta S. Perry
This little painting is an amalgamation of several photos. The Colorado skies are magnificent, but I’m not always in the right place at the right time. The farm picture was taken from a distance as we were traveling along the freeway—no place to slip off the road for a photo, so it was taken as we moved—always interesting to see exactly what you’ve captured! The field was fallow, so I had to remember what it might have looked like after planting.
I used Wallis sanded paper as the ground with a hot pink and alcohol wash underneath, A mix of soft pastels completed the picture.
