One of my blog readers emailed me asking what became of that upper right corner. Here it is now as part of the whole painting.

Out with the old....I brushed off a painting to use the surface again.
Next, I applied a thin oil-wash as a loose composition of the next painting.

"Light Show II" and "The Good Road Home." This version was painted more quickly because it is smaller than the other two and has a more abstract feel. "Sunset" is 8.25 x 8.25 inches. The top photo shows the reference photo and the painting as an oil foundation before any pastel was applied. I'm using the paper of an old painting - I think it is 140lb Lanaquarelle watercolor paper covered with red pumice gesso mixture.
