'Benbow Color' Pastel by Ralphie Hendrix
In the late fall which happens to be my favorite season besides winter, the color of the trees and grasses down at Benbow are just extraordinary. When you look very deeply into shadow, you can see so much color. In the early morning as the sun casts its light on us while creating these deep shadows that are so elusive, You must paint quickly to capture both light and shadow before it changes before your eyes. This is a reality that I have a problem with when I paint plein air.
