Yucca Promise

Yucca Promise
7 x 5
Pastel on Pastel Premier Sanded Paper

The flowers this spring have been spectacular. The yucca in the area are budding in what I think are record numbers. This particular stand of yuccas caught my eye last weekend as we (my sister and me) traveled back and forth to the pastel workshop we were attending. I had to stop to gawk at them and take photos. 

This is a small test of an composition. What I like about this stand of yucca is the depth in the stand - the perspective or atmosphere. I will likely do a larger painting of this same image or something similar. I was also fascinated with the spotted patterns on the blades. It's hard to achieve that on such a small space.
