Saturday Plein Air - Battelle Darby Creek metro park

I've been painting each Saturday, but posted on my Facebook Artist page instead of here. Sorry!

This week, we were at Battelle Darby Creek metro park near the nature center. It was way too hot to hike to find the buffalo, so most of us stayed in the shade at the nature center. I was looking through this opening to paint the couple of sycamore trees along the trail:
It has been a few weeks since I worked in pastels, so brought them today. I was using a piece of Pastelmat paper which was previously toned with gouache in a golden color.

It came together pretty quickly. I like it!
