Late Day at the Arboretum

Pastel painting; 10x12. Challenge here was muting the large distant tree in the background so that it shows distinctly behind the bold tree in the main focus of the painting. Muted green and ochre were used with some lighter blue and pink added atop the pastel.

The shaded leaves on the main tree help convey it closeness, as well as the bolder local yellow leaves catching the sunlight.
