Definitely moody is the style of this painting… I love to paint landscapes in this way…very soft and impressionistic with details only suggested and nothing defined, except for the birds in this particular one…this is my very first pastel landscape and it was completed today….although I have used pastel a few times in Still Life, I never got around to using them for landscape before today..
I enjoyed it and hope to do more as pastel really lends itself to impressionistic work, and the vivid colours are just what I like…
Pastel on Arches Not Paper
Sailing the boat of silver light,
The moon-beauty is fast approaching me.
The sky is vibrating with sweet and melodious songs.
The birds are flying beyond the horizon
To an unknown land…Sri Chinmoy
