Painting trees in soft pastels

The soft pastel Landscape painting below is from a photograph taken near the banks of river Kaveri, in the district of Kodagu, Karnataka. We visited this dense green forest area while we were holidaying in Coorg.

The photograph was clicked at around eleven in the morning and part of the landscape is in shadows. The sunlight piercing through the trunks falling on the edges of trunks and foliage around made for an interestng subject to paint. I have few more such photographs lined up for painting. In the meantime i have already started with my plein air charcoal sketching of Landscape and will post a few images soon.
