Canal Reflection

I have found that doing a small black and white charcoal sketch before launching into the pastel painting is a useful exercise.  Learning the landscape so to speak.   I only explore a small stretch of the canal but it's quite enough.   Someday, when I have the time and the weather cooperates, I will do paintings of the canal going north towards Lambertville.
