30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day 3

"Tree Tops" 8" x 10" Pastel on Paper

I love to take photos of tree tops and this pastel was inspired by a photo I took while on a walk. The sun was hitting the trees and making them glow against the sky.
I used Ersta 600 grit paper for this and started it out with a watercolor underpaintings. I sometimes get carried away and cover up all my underpainting but I was careful to let some show through this time. I think it adds a little sparkle to the pastel.
