So I worked small, quickly, and loosely on a pastel. Since I use reading glasses, it works for me to paint without them, that way I don't nit-pick over details and the end painting is very loose. Process shots below.
I enjoyed seeing some butterflies while I worked in the herb garden at Gantz Gardens/Farm. I was painting the Autumn Clematis on the arbor. I'd put down a vibrant under painting before I left home onto the pastel paper.
