Landscape Study

This little study was done on left over pastel paper I found floating around my office drawer. I gave it a coating of matte medium to seal the porous surface and then drew out my scene with oils. Using a photo I took on vacation in central Pennsylvania I manipulated the colors after another painting's color scheme, a process used by many artists. Working during breaks I only had three small windows of time for basic exploration.
