Portage Island Cliff 6×6 Series No. 12 – pastel painting by Nancy E. Ging © 2017

After a long winter hiatus, I really enjoyed getting back to the easel today. To get warmed up, I painted a new version of my Portage Island Cliff series. I’d been studying the cliff out the window all winter and wanted to see what I’d learned. I set “Portage Island Cliff Series No. 11” on a cloudy spring day. I liked the soft luminescence the diffused light gave to the birch tree.
