Color study for Orchard Memory

This is the 5x7 inch color study for my next painting, It is available for purchase at the DPW Auction. (sold) "Meadow Road" is the title of this one.

 Below are the four steps for this painting:
1. Black acrylic on tan Ampersand Pastelbord.
2. Light lavender to block in the lightest areas.
3. Trying out a few colors
4. The finished color study.

If this scene looks familiar, it is because earlier this month I posted "Glory Days," a 13x17 inch version of the same scene but in a warmer palette.


  1. I love your blog! I know next to nothing about pastel and have only used them for drawings and not well. I really like seeing your process and how you explain what you do. I've oogled your work for a few hours now! They are all so dreamy. Nice job.

  2. Gracias por explicar este interesante
    proceso,la pintura te quedo espontanea
    y unos matices de color espectaculares.

  3. Thank you for your comment and congratulations Juan.
