Down by The White River Side

A few days at the White River State Park was the perfect time to start working with pastels. I am rusty and working on techniques. I took a limited palette of pastels and a cheap-o easel. Boy was the easel a mistake, way too light weight to be useful. But that’s why I do try outs, to see what works and what doesn’t.

These are all small pastel sketches of scenes around our campsite in Chance the Chinook.
