Tiny Treasure #28

Isn't it amazing how different pastels can be from oils!
When I painted the picker's cabins in oils, I knew I wanted to keep it loose and emphasize the different colors of "white." Then when I completed this pastel of the same subject, it just blew me away that they can be so different.

It could be the colored ground I used with this pastel. I began with a bold orange/red ground that would tie the painting together. I also allowed the cabins to remain more colorful and less "white."

I also added figures and a picker's bucket, giving the
painting a different "feel."
