More pastels

I continue to beaver away at pastel paintings on Wednesdays at Strathnairn with other artists - I use my own photos as references and use different surfaces - some textured and some not giving a variety of results.  I'm not sure what I like best.

The first two here are from Kashmir which I visited in 1989. The photos  appear in my photo book.
