I am privileged to be part of an 18 member workshop with the renowned pastelist Richard McKinley this month, so you will be seeing posts about this in the coming weeks. Here is the painting I painted while together with this group on the lovely grounds of the Hill-Stead Museum yesterday. I had never been there before, and plan on returning.
This painting is 8″ x 10″ and painted in pastel on a sanded surface. The weather was glorious and I had a great time! Check out the position of my easel in the photo below; I was near the huge, gracious front porch of the house, looking at the view of an amazing tree bordered by autumn foliage.
