Betsey Nelson - Pampas Grass

BetseyNelson- Pampas Grass pastel 13.5x18 NFS
A difficult painting is sometimes a wonderful surprise. Don't be afaid to tackle something you have no idea how to paint. This piece was a plein air piece done in an unfamilar place at the time of day which usually is hard to get a strong piece high noon to 2pm. Throwing caution to the wind i went for it and was very pleased with the result. It will be a part of my own collection and may someday be the basis of a studio painting. Right now it is a constant remonder of what can be when you take a chance.
