Harmony with the Hills, Pastel, 7 1/2" x 16 1/2", painted on Wallis sanded paper

This painting was done from a reference photo taken by Paula Ford for WetCanvas' refeference image library.  I thought it was beautiful, with rich greens and a sense of grandure.  The layers of atmosphere and lighting also attracted me, as well as all those trees.  This started out with a pastel and alcohol underpainting, then I used Mount Visions and Ludwig sticks for the actual painting.
