I finished this pastel today. This is from Torrey Pines State Reserve, my favorite part of our trip to San Diego a few years ago. This is my first pastel from outside New York, and it was nice to be able to use blue for the sky.
Related story, when my son was about four, he was drawing a landscape with crayon and I asked him, what color is the sky? White, he answered, and that’s the crayon he reached for.
