SEASONAL CONTRASTS (10×14 acrylic)

This was based on a Plein Air study along the Little Sioux River in NW Iowa around the start of the new year.  The river was iced over but the sun, for January was warm.  My goal for the past few years has been to work in the studio based on pastels done on sight.  My study will follow.
