Elusive Fog

The last few days have been misty and foggy and once again, I am fascinated with trying to capture that in a pastel.  I’ve tried it before with mixed success.  I have the HARDEST time separating what my eyes are seeing and what my brain is telling me.  Am I really seeing GRAY?  But trees are green.  Or gray-ish -green.  Here’s a reference photo that I’ve painted from before.DSC_1492

Here’s what I’m working on right now.  It’s not finished.  I’ll probably whack the top off and who knows, I may run my arm over the whole thing to smear it up and maybe THAT will make it look more foggy.
