Balboa Island - Newport Beach

I'm still playing around with pastels.  This is a small painting (7x9) that I did from a reference photo I took last month.  It is challenging to do a small painting with pastels, and I suppose it demands then that you don't fuss around, as I did below.

This sunrise is from a trip to the Grand Canyon I took last year.  This is about a 1/2 mile down the trail into the canyon, and I took this the morning after we came back up from the bottom.  The sunrises are just breathtaking.  I will redo this one - it's a 9 x 12.  I think I'll paint this in oil next.
