Duck Pond November 22nd

Tom Painting the Duck Pond
Four painters showed up on the first snow painting day of this season at the Duck Pond on Nakoma Rd.  I stayed in my car drawing for awhile but got out long enough to do a quick pastel.  I painted this from the parking lot with an obscured view so I sort of faked it.  I think Tom is a bit taller.  I used Colorfix pastel paper in a sort of plum shade.  I rarely use this brand of paper but for quick sketches  a dark background like this can help speed things along. Below is Nan Zimdars' oil painting of the pond.  She and Tom were brave enough to stand in the snow.
