Painting Saturday at the MAC

Today was the first inside painting session for the season at the MAC. We are done painting outside for the year. Undoubtedly, there will be a few hardy souls who will paint outside all winter. But I need to start using my own studio to paint and will go to the MAC Saturday painting sessions occasionally.

I decided to just play around with pastels today. It seems like its been a long time since I used my pastels. I used a scrap of Pastelmat. I like this surface a lot and hope to do much more with it.

Here are my two sketches from today. Both used the same reference photo. The first shows the whole scene, and the second a closely cropped version. I like the second sketch quite a bit.
