pastel painting river cam boats cambridgeI started painting this in soft pastels plein air in October last year, and it is one of those which sit their patiently waiting for me to finish them off.
And today I did just that.

It's on afull size sheet, about 70cm x  45cm. I spent a long time doing the detail, and looking at the general composition through a mirror to assess which parts were out of balance.
