PASTEL PAINTING

Hi,

I had this picture I took few weeks ago during a trip in North of Madrid. The light, so particular and the composition were a good suject for a bigger pastel (around 30x40cm).
So I decided to focus on the light and for that, I intentionally worked with no details, keeping the shapes a bit blur except for the tree in foreground.
Camille Corot was a master in creating this blury effects in the landscape painting, especially in the trees foliage. He was my main inspiration for the style I explored for this painting.
The way I limited my color was also inspired by the old Masters.
This is definitively a style I feel confortable with and appropriate for pastel painting I hope to create.
Guillaume.
