Color sketches in pastel…

Recently, I’ve been going out to relax and do a little cross training in my artwork. Normally a detailed drawing with exacting details on the bird or plant are what I did. Now just to go out and do a color sketch has been fun and I can relax with no worries. That doesn’t mean I don’t struggle every so often.

Here are a few drawn at the CalPoly “Leaning Pine Arboretum” that you might enjoy.

These framed arboretum pastels (18″x22″)  will be on exhibit in the Sands Inn and Suites in San Luis Obispo, CA, USA 93401 during the months of May and June 2016. They are available for sale, with prices on request plus shipping unless you pick them up in Morro Bay.

Until the next sketch… peace, Heather
