Mountain



A little pastel sketch which started out as a pure abstract and ended up evolving into a small mountain.

Wow, look at what happens when the golden yellow touches the blue gray! Your touches of blue that are scumbled over the yellow make a vibration. Sweet.

Glad you like it, Loriann. I also like the violet-gray neutrals that happen at the meeting points of the yellow/orange and the darker blue/violet/grays. (Really specific color language there...ha ha.) It does seem as if most of the interesting stuff comes in that area where things meet...

Jala, Check out Richard McKinley's blog pastel pointers. This week he wrote about just that...the excitement in the place where colors meet. "building bridges"
