Cape Cod Dinghy Low Tide Painting by Nancy Poucher

"Light over Dark"
Soft Pastel on Wallis Museum paper 8x8"
Available Sunday in My Daily Painters Gallery
Generally, with pastels, I work from light to dark. It's always easier to lighten a dark tone than it is to darken a light tone. When I laid in my foreground and reflection, I used my darkest Terry Ludwig pastels with plans to bring in some lighter tones on top. But I liked the contrast between the darks of the water and the light above. Hope that somebody out there likes it too!
