september song progression

September Song plein air study and beginning of studio piece

September Song, pastel, 16 x 20 inches
I have a prospectus for an interesting exhibition. Each artist may submit a plein study and its corresponding studio painting. The theme is water so the obvious choice for me is our garden pond. It was recently restocked with gold fish after the Great Blue Heron ate all the previous ones. On a sunny day the orange/red fish are a spectacular color combination against the sun-drenched green/gold pond water. Our pond is rimmed on the shady backside with bamboo, bending and swaying in September breezes.
