Lopez Island plein air

I tried out a piece of Jack Richeson pastel paper today. Compared to the Kitty Wallis paper I usually work on, this toned paper had big bits of grit on a sometimes slick surface. It was difficult for me to work with and I found that the overall toned surface was a distraction.

But standing on the bow of the boat in Fisherman's Bay, looking out at the sunlight on the beach and cliffs ... a little bit of heaven.
