Warm Light in the Sand Dunes Soft Pastel Painting

"Warm Light in the Dunes"
Soft pastel on Belgian Mist paper 9x12"
Bid at my Daily Paintworks auction starting at only $50.

I'm really enjoying going back through some of my older plein air pieces and reworking them a bit. I try and recall the day, time of year, etc. The dunes are a favorite place to pastel. When I'm painting outside I try and realistically capture the colors but if it's not one of those magical times of the day the end result may be a good study to work from but maybe not an exciting finished painting. So in reworking, I push the color a bit, perhaps change some shapes and add some more exciting highlights. Hope you like them!
