Through the raspberries in the morning

This is from a morning in November with my husband and the dogs near the river.

I recently received a set of Sennelier pastels for my birthday and this is the first time I’ve used them. I was afraid the set had too many browns. I almost returned it! But I decided to keep it and in time get a few sticks of purples and pinks (which it is missing!) to round it out.

The sticks are buttery and have unbelievable coverage. And the colors are better on paper than they look in the box. They were more difficult to control than Rembrandt’s, but I’m glad I kept them. In time I’ll get better at handling them (I hope) and I do really like their feeling.
