"Little Creek at Carter Caves

I got my money's worth today at Carter Caves Park starting at 7:30 this morning and finishing up this evening at 8:00 pm. This is such a beautiful place. I could work here every week for the rest of the year. 

But tomorrow is my final day here and then off to Broad Ripple Art Fair.

My favorite pastel of the day is another one of the lake this evening but since I posted the lake yesterday, I'll show the reference photo, initial step, and final pastel of a tributary to a creek on Horn Hollow path.
My earlier pastel of this site took in more of the scene but that was taking in too much and with this piece I focused on the side creek with an emphasis on the ripples.
