Texan Trees

Texan Trees

I drew as we drove from Austin to New Mexico today across a mesmerizing landscape. The trees, I think live oak trees, were thick near Austin, but the further we drove the more sparse they became. They were somewhat backlit against the blue sky and browning hills and just plain beautiful.

I sketched with pastel pencil on black paper and then overpainted portions of the pastel with gouache.
