More October Scenes

A trip to Leavenworth on Highway 2 about a week ago gave us a chance to see some of the color changes in the mountains.

October Scenes

Last week we took an overnight trip to the Olympic Peninsula.  We went as far as Forks, WA. The weather was cloudy and rainy most of the time, but we had a morning of filtered sunshine which allowed for a few good reference photos.  "By the Side of the Road - Study" features some of the trees which look so lovely when the sun rays hit their fall foliage.  This is 5 x 7 inches, pastel on PastelMat paper.

After the Challenge

I am still a bit in challenge mode--the adrenaline is still there.  I decided to do another pastel piece today.  This is from a photo taken in the spring a few years ago.  "Apple Blossom Time" is pastel and is 8 x 8 inches.

Day 30 - 30 in 30 Challenge

For Day 30 of this Challenge (I only missed one day!) I am posting "Vine Covered Garage" which is based on the corner of our garage which I see from my studio window.  It is so English Cottage-like when the wisteria is blooming.  This is also pastel on sanded paper.

Day 29 - 30 in 30 Challenge

Today's entry for the challenge is a group of bottles that "live" on my windowsill.  I love the nearly imperceptive coloring of the glass and the way the light affects them. "Windowsill Bottles" is pastel and is 7 x 5 inches on UArt sanded paper.

Day 28 - 30 in 30 Challenge

I'm trying another sunset image today.  The best sunsets are the real sunsets as you watch them change every minute.  However, this is at least a reminder of the beautiful mixture of colors at one chosen moment.  Deep Sunset - pastel - 7 x 5 inches.

Day 27 - 30 in 30 Challenge

I worked on a pastel piece this morning and didn't like it so I worked on a different one this evening and it worked out better.  This is Stop At The River and is 7 x 9 inches - pastel.
