Another try at a pastel painting, I really enjoy doing them and learning along the way. This one is of a cold, cold morning in a UK park. The ground was frozen and hard and freezing mist hid the distant trees. Far too cold to sit and draw so I had to rely on my memory and some reference photos.
The more you sketch the better your visual memory gets and it's easier to imprint a scene in your mind. Sometimes just a few lines and marks can bring back the colours, feelings and sounds. With this one I wanted to get the silence and cold grey light and I had to keep the image in my mind until I got back home.
