I laid down the darkest and lightest areas first.
From there, I began to actually paint, putting down many light layers of pastel.
Creating pastel paintings en plein air throughout upstate New York.
From city scenes around Rochester, the hills of the Finger Lakes and to the shore of Lake Ontario.
I have recently opened a shop on the website ETSY. I am adding new items everyday including prints of many of the original paintings you see here on my blog, as well as other paintings done in other mediums. I hope you'll stop in there often to see what's new!
