Provinceland Dunes, Cape Cod Pastel Painting by Poucher

"Provinceland Dunes"
Soft pastel on Wallis paper 8.5x11.5"
I blended this plein air piece more than usual to give it that softer look of these hazy days of summer. Color shapers, pipe insulation and fingers were all used to soften the edges. What do you think? Do you use tools to blend your pastels?

Thanks to Kim for organizing such a great group of women for the weekend pastel painting workshop on her gorgeous deck. I think everyone captured the steamy atmosphere of the day wonderfully!
