Liz # 24 and #25 The Nob

#25 Reworked the acrylics...

# 25 pastel on Wallis paper, 7x8.5

#24 Originl version- acrylic on board, I worked from a photo, wishing I was back on Cape Cod as this was one of my favorite places. I painted in acrylics first then the pastel version. I focused on values and kept a fairly limited palette. So good to be painting again after reclaiming my empty nest and figuring how to set up a studio. Not quite set up and feeling surprised at how much time can be consumed preparing to paint,- and then it's sundown. Yikes.

These are really pretty, and I especially love the cerulean type of blue in the top one. The empty nest is hard to adjust to, but at least you have painting room!

I also like the acrylic one at the top. Maybe it's the blue. Nice job on the rocks

Beautiful sense of light in the top on, Liz! Love the depth you've created. I also think you've captured a moody feel in the bottom image. Perhaps a different time of day.
