Mendocino Afternoon

This is another pastel piece that I managed to do in the time allotted me by my tour guide operator Michael Baschak, of the bay off of the village of Mendocino California.  I am glad that I took my pastels on this trip as they allowed me to do fairly quick studies of the places I visited and offered a quite good selection of colours for that locale.

These look like different colors than you normally use. It's very neat how you sort of blurred the horizon--almost looks like what you'd see if you were at the beach and the wind and spray was in the air and your eyes. I like it a lot; one of my favorites!

I was intrigued by the way the horizon was always partially obscured by fog/mist, even on a clear day. It was great to respond to the place I was in by using the appropriate colours at that particular time. One of the joys of painting.
