Cairnsmore in Pink!

Cairnsmore in Pink!

Fast sketching can be exhilarating to the viewer as well as the artist and this is great. love the story and what a view!

Great sketch Fiona. Lovely foreground textures and the smoothed out background looks quite atmospheric. Well done.

You tend to use more colour when you use pastel Fiona. I like those lines that lead me through the foreground.

I love the distant pink hills Fiona, the sky shows them up beautifully.

Lovely sketch Fiona and done in very quick time, Like the distant hills, the way they are blended.

lovely jubbly as dell boy said. its lovely Fiona very fresh

Gorgeous Fiona pastel well used

This is gorgeous and I am pleased you were safely in the warm.

Thank you everyone for your comments, wanted to show the difference a day makes, it's different again today!

Hang on Studio Wall

14x11 pastel on old piece of practice paper. Would you believe this is the same view as yesterday's posting, only further away. It was done very quickly in about 10-15 mins, the sunset was reflecting off the snow on Cairnsmore and was glowing pink. The very dark areas are plantations of spruce part of the Galloway forest sand they really did look this dark, had to use black as I only grabbed a handful of pastels, so had to use what I had. That's why the line of blue and sienna scribble, mid distance.....which are also tree plantations look odd. The blue again are spruce and the sienna are a birch plantation. This scribble shows a more distant view, I was further away than yesterday's and behind glass from the sitting room.
