Sketchy Pastel

The Refectory
6" x 9"
A morning sketching in a favorite place.  This is the first of four,  left it in its original sketchy condition without any retouching in the studio.  Started at 8am and finished at 2pm, including a break for bag lunch and thermos of tea.  Sometimes, the conditions are perfect.   Quiet.  A lull before season starts, folks still up north looking at leaves.  High season here's only between Christmas and Easter.  Leaves the rest of the year for perfect painting conditions.
