This is my entry into this weeks DPW Challenge, "The Phone Photo Challenge". This is only the top right corner of the reference taken by Elaine Stolt. We were to crop, change colors and just have fun with it. So I did! I tried cropping in several areas and finally decided on the upper right corner. When it enlarged, I could see that the strokes in the filter I used showed the land going in one direction and the strokes for the water going in the other direction. So I decided to do my pastel strokes that way.
