Evening Flight - Sandhill cranes
Evening Flight, 12x24" Pastel.
In early Spring 2021, I had a chance to see thousands of Sandhill cranes stop over on the North Platte river during their spring migration north. Every evening, they would gather in the thousands before they descended on to the river for the night - it was pure magic to see. And the inspiration for this pastel painting.
Colors vary from screen to screen, the dominant colors of this pastel painting are purple, tan, and light blue. This pastel painting ships flat, and unframed.
