"A Gray day on the Parkway"
pastel, 8" x 10"
It was raining off and on the whole morning and into the afternoon but then I noticed an apparent window in the weather open mid afternoon and decided to chance it and quickly packed everything up and headed out to the Parkway. I was feeling the urge to get dusty so I took my pastels. The light was kind of odd since there was enough light from the right to give form to the trees and cast shadows but the sky was very light and gray in the background. Just as I was packing up the wind picked up and the sky behind me got very dark, I timed my little excursion just perfect. Here's a shot of the setup I used that day;
