Saturday Plein Air - New Galena Boat ramp

Back to Ohio plein air! It was a beautiful day and we had about 16 or so painters show up. I worked on a small pastel. This was the view I selected across the inlet:

I was working on the new Pastel Premier paper toned in a clay color. I had placed a 9x12 sheet on my easel, but decided to work small and marked off a 5x5 area. Below is the hard pastel composition. I then sprayed it with alcohol and let it dry.

Here's the finished painting. You can see the drips of the earlier alcohol wash, down the paper below it.
 Here's a closeup:
