Cherry Blossoms in Soft Pastel, Finished

After adding details to the blossoms and branches, fine tuning the highlights and shadows, and doing some touching up it was time to step back and call it finished. Soft pastel only allows you to lay down so much on to the paper, and it is not a very detail oriented medium, so though I have the urge to keep messing, I have to force myself to step away and allow it to be a finished painting. I am very happy with how it came out. Though I will be selling this painting, I only trust it to be sold and picked up in person. Shipping it is just too sketchy. I will be selling Fine Art Giclee Prints (professionally printed on Fine Art Smooth Paper) in my Etsy shop soon. You can view my shop at
