Sloan Gully

A 12x9 pastel of the Hopper from the gully on Sloan Road.  I started this pastel with an alcohol wash.  I have noticed that sometimes Degas would leave whole portions of a washed area untouched with hand applied pastel in a pastel.  But I did not do that in this case.  Next time.  I thought this view interesting from the standpoint of being in the gully hole.

It's another break from looking into fields.  I have more fields coming, alas.
