Siesta Key beach shack

My first pastel from Florida.  I did this one from a photo I had from last year.  Anxious to getting more photographs.  Florence, my art instructor, shared ways to put photos together to create wonderful compositions to paint.  I'm going on a photo shoot today. 
Below is the first stage of the painting I'm doing in her class.  We are actually doing a pastel painting from her original painting which she did from her own photo.  Make sense? 
I'm sending sun to all my friends up north! 


  1. I'm so jealous. It's freezing here. Love your warm pastel colors and the way you apply your strokes.

  2. Thanks Robin. I do feel like I am in heaven. I don't miss that snow and cold.
