A couple of years back my esteemed colleague in pastels Sarah Rose showed me this picture of a canyon in Utah she came across on horseback. I was intrigued by this picture because in the rock formation I could see a lot of abstract forms. I liked doing this impressionistic pastel while on the other hand it has an abstract feel to it without loosing the link to impressionism I was embracing back in 2014, doing plenty of landscape in this style.
