Kern River Vista | Pastel | 5x7
Kernville, a town alongside Lake Isabella, used to be located in the lakebed until a dam and reservoir was constructed back in the '50's. Many of the buildings were physically moved to the new townsite on the northern most point of the Lake. It is an interesting small vintage hamlet with the Kern River running thru it's center. The top local restaurant, Ewings ('Dining, Drink and Views'), has this magnificent view up Bull Run Canyon! And the food was every bit as good as it was advertised - Inch and a half thick prime rib on a Saturday night!
Process: The substrate is Wallis white paper with the underpainting pastel brushed and spritzed with ISO. I'd like to come back in with some more definition on the front left grey pines.
