Jeme's Bench - 10" x 12" Pastel

My friend has a lovely little bench tucked away in a clearing under some trees in her yard...the perfect little place to curl up with a book on a lazy summer morning. This is how it would look if she decided to plant an English Garden around it. During our neighborhood "powerwalks", Jeme and I often talk about what other people could to make their property prettier; today I decided to style her little bench.
About the painting itself, I tried something new...I did four thumbnails of different layouts, and I think that really did help me correct some design issues before starting. Landscapes are still not my forte, but this one was fun!
