14"x 11" - Soft Pastel on Board
I had the opportunity to take several pictures of one of my friend's place where they turned 80 acres back to prairie grasses and other plants. A beautiful place in the NE corner of Van Buren Co. Iowa.
This was a foggy morning that she invited local artists to come paint. I wasn't able to set up on location that day, but loved all the Queen Anne's Lace in bloom so thank goodness....camera was in hand.
I started this work with a watercolor underpainting over AS Colourfix Multi Media Primer on a masonite board. There's a few places where you can still see the watercolor wash.
