Title Plein Air Pastel Painting on Cape Cod
Description I joined some of my Cape Cod pals for a day of Plein air at Sandy Neck in Barnstable. Rangers piled all our gear and us into a pickup truck and drove us through huge sand dunes to a small cabin on the edge of a marsh. It took a half hour from the gate. No other people around. At the end of the day the Rangers picked us up and we had another fun drive thru the dunes. Lots of great scenes to paint. I chose a huge dune. It's a pastel with a pink under painting. 11x14" This dune was enormous.
There were storm clouds and rain in the distance but only got a few raindrops. We fired up a wood stove for tea and coffee and did a mid day critique. Rain stopped and we got out to paint again. A great day.

Gorgeous painting. I love the shapes one can see and capture when outside painting. When you say you used pastels I assume you mean chalk pastels as opposed to oil pastels?
