Olana Pastel

I spent the day at Olana State Historic Site in Hudson NY with the Mohawk Valley Region Plein Air Painters. I've been teaching myself how to work with pastels for the past several months in preparation of painting outdoors this summer. I've made the decision to work in oils in my studio and pastels outdoors. It was a beautiful day and great to be outdoors.

  1. You've got wonderful light and shadows into your painting Robin. I think it is a great idea to alternate between oils and pastels for your indoor and outdoor work. I clicked onto your link and was blown away at what a beautiful place Olana State Historic Site is. How amazing to have somewhere like that to visit and paint plein air!
