"Evening at the Lake"

"Evening at the Lake"
6 x 6", Pastel on mounted Wallis paper.

This painting is up for bid on DPW auction:

At beginning of this year I started working with small 6x6 Flemish-style
oil paintings. I want to finish the rest of this year by doing
several paintings of the same format in pastels.
"Evening at the Lake" is #1 in those "mini-pastel" series.
I painted one of my very familiar and favorite local spots -
Wildwood lake, several paintings of which I have done before.
This small work has watercolor underpainting and finished
with some of my favorite pastels and pastel pencils. 
More to follow.


  1. This "Evening at the Lake" is very beautiful. I love the feel of this painting and the composition if very nice. Well done.

  2. Thank You, Donna! I painted this scene few years ago in 12x12" size and had all sorts of mental problems with it... Just wanted to do it BETTER, I guess. Now I'm much more happy with this small version. It is totally different painting to, even I used exactly the same reference. I appreciate such a great comment from mature pastelist as Yourself.
