Abandoned Path landscape painting SOLD

“Abandoned Path landscape painting”
8″ x 8″, unframed pastel painting

I’m really enjoying landscapes so far. Fortunately I have tons of images saved so I was able to loosely work from one in my files. I painted a large tree at first but it wasn’t working as a composition. My paper has so much tooth that I was able to brush it off without leaving a ghost image.

I’d like to go more abstract for the next one. It’s not an easy task. I have so much respect for abstract painters. It’s very challenging to abstract an image and be left with a successful, eye catching composition.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are viewing this painting on a cell phone the colors will be more saturated. A pc or tablet is best for viewing.
