Oil Pastel Landscape On the River's Bank
I had been traipsing along the Grand River's bank when I spied the copse of trees and actual blue shadows. A sketch, a photo and back to the studio. White/grey trees presented an interesting challenge. You can layer oil pastels only so much especially with the softer Sennelier oil pastels, so the evergreens had to be done then a line scraped through them to make way for the white/grey trees.
