A Day Away

I finished this painting yesterday and I'm quite happy with the way it turned out. This is only the 2nd soft pastel painting that I've ever done. The photograph that I used as a reference was from Mackinac Island. My family and I took a day trip there and I snapped this picture of my little brother by the waters edge. He doesn't know it! I'm hoping he thinks it's "cool" that I painted him in a picture.

Anyway, Mackinac Island is probably my favorite place and I have hundreds of reference pictures from my trips there. I sense a series coming on! :) I don't know but we'll see!
