Shepherd's Huts Haute Alpes Pastel Painting

Shepherd's Huts Haute Alpes by Marion Hedger
40x50 cm (16"x20") 
Pastel Painting on sanded card

This idyllic scene is of the Haute Alpes in Provence, France. The shape and position of these remote huts caught my eye. We took off on a whim one day in September and spent a week touring around. It certainly is a remote area, one I would love to visit again in the spring for the spring flowers.
I am considering redoing this scene again, but in oils.

Distant Shores Oil Pastel Painting

Distant Shores Painting by Marion Hedger
Oil Pastel on beige Ingress pastel paper

A reworked painting of one I painted as part of the landscape challenge on wetcanvas.com. I added a closer headland and worked some more on the sky.
Here is the original painting
I hope you think I improved on the original.
