Dusk en plein air
Dusk on the Assinaboine River
This is a pastel painted just as the sun was going down over the Shellmouth valley. I was sitting with a friend by the river desperately trying to capture the colours before they were gone, a near impossible task. Near the end of the session I was just guessing because I couldn't really see the pastels in my box, hence the sketchiness of the piece. A memorable experience by the river with the waterfowl flying about and the fish jumping out of the water trying to catch bugs.
