A breezy summer day with fast-moving clouds and shadows, and the apple trees took center stage in the middle of a field of ripening grass. I endeavored to capture the movement of the leaves and grasses in the capricious breeze with sketchy, impatient lines, while keeping my easel and drawing board from being carried away in the wind.
This was an old horse pasture, and people used to plant apple trees in pastures for horses or cows, in part for the natural food, which they love, and for protection from the weather.
This painting is an original pastel on Canson Mi Tientes pastel paper, image size 22″ x 18″ painted in 1994.
I framed it in a custom decorative white moulding with a 2″ white linen liner. Framed size is 26″ x 22″.
This pastel is for sale, framed, in my Etsy shop.
