Autumn Woods, Pastel, 5" x 7", painted on Arches hot press watercolor paper with Colourfix ground

This is a very tiny painting I did from a photo reference in the WetCanvas Reference Image Library.  I believe the person that took the photo goes by the "name" Snowgoose on WetCanvas.  It is a beautiful photo, and I enjoyed painting this because the colors were so vibrant.  I took some artistic license with the composition and cropping, the photo has much more of a foreground and is actually a distance shot as opposed to this type of a closeup.  I'd like to paint this one again, but much larger.
