I've been working on this pastel off and on for a few days now. The idea was to use short dash strokes to portray the landscape, stay lyrical and faithful to the ambiance of the place. I am somewhat happy with the result but plan on re-visiting the idea with another painting. The scene is called the "Bridge", the sandstone is carved into a natural arch that overlooks an amphitheater type basin which further looks out over a valley. A wonderful place down in southern Utah on the way to Bryce Canyon.
