30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day 2

For day two of my 30 in 30 challenge with Leslie Saeta I did a landscape inspired by another one of my favorite places near Santa Barbara. I used LaCarte paper again and a combination of Blue Earth, Unison and Mount Vision pastels.
I had to start all over with this one because I lost most of the value and contrast, it looked a little blah. I took it outside and dusted off all the pastel I could until all that was left was a faint image and then started all over making sure to pay attention to my values and I am much happier with the results.
