Landscapes and seascapes

The original photograph ( taken from the pixabay.com website ) was very relaxing and atmospheric and I thought it would reproduce nicely in sepia. The waves are very effective with their white crests and I am very pleased with the end result.

A friend took this stunning sunset in Cornwall and I loved the colours and where the sun lights up the sea thrift. It is hard to believe the original photograph was actually not photoshopped! Beautiful image that made a striking pastel painting.

I took this photograph one autumn morning and I was taken by the contrast between the sunlight, the autumn leaves and the shadows made by the father and son. It made a wonderful pastel painting, using soft pastel and pastel pencils, and sold during my open house exhibition in 2014.....
