Although I am not a pastel artist as a rule, I do like to try my hand at the sticks occasionally. This picture was derived from a visit to an artist friend of mine in Ridgefield, Washington. When leaving his residence and standing on his front porch, I turned looking west towards the Ridgefield Refuge. I was momentarily taken with the cloud formations with the bright sun streaks playing hide and seek behind them. I immediately ran to my car, got out my trusty Nikon and snapped a reference shot to work from at my studio. Although not a highly detailed or finished pastel, the essence of what had captured me is fairly accurate.
