Marsh Grass

11 x 14 Pastel on paper

I have done this scene in a smaller format, but wanted to do a larger version for an entry in a show. I am happy with the result, I love these grass paintings for their negative space I get to work with.

  4. Just beautiful MaryAnne! That rich blue is so stunning, yet maintains its place in the perspective. I like the almost graphic abstract quality that still has the feeling of reality.

  5. I love the blue behind the dried grasses, and the perspective you have chosen - all mesh beautifully together to make a fantastic work of art.
