Branching Out

Every now and then, sometimes it seems to be almost every day, I have to try something just to see if it will work, at the risk of turning out a dud or semi-dud.  For this pastel, I tried to use both both negative and positive spaces in fleshing out those thin tree branches, working on a dark background, trying to keep the dynamism of the branches through a painterly approach.   These trees are located at the main entrance to Washington Crossing Park. 8x10 on colourfix paper.
