Perfect Balance cairn painting

“Perfect Balance”
6″ x 6″ pastel painting, unframed

It’s the fifth day of the creative February challenge and I decided to use my pastels today.
After I set these up I brought in a light to cast the shadows. I probably took about 20 photos and this one won. I love the balance of rocks and shadows in this one.

It may not appear so but I skimped a bit on details. I have cataracts in my right eye and it’s starting to interfere with my vision. Fortunately I have an appointment with the eye doctor today and my vision will soon be restored! If not I’ll have to go abstract ;-)
