My daughter Sara toured the National Parks last summer and has shared a plethora of gorgeous landscapes from Grand Teton National Park and other scenic venues.
Here is a little work-in-progress painting - about 4x6 in size. I have an upcoming Landscape in Pastel class at the Michigan Art Center, and I plan to teach how to capture various elements of the landscape, including mountains such as this.
Don't resist trying out small landscape paintings! It's amazing how much you can convey within a little canvas. I have several small ones for sale on my Etsy shop, and you will note that many fellow pastel artists post small works for an easy, cost-effective sale.
