Out of the heads and back onto the greenery! 

Taking a stroll at a  quaint corner of the overgrown Bosque.

This little one is a study and currently recreating it larger
in my studio. Attempting to keep the looseness of the 
pastel strokes.

Relishing on going drawing today!
 Above is my second piece from last week's effort. 

Below is another I did awhile back. Different
substrates as well as colors really affect the outcome.
And I devoted more time to this, so really was
able to punch up the colors!
