Oil Pastel Marigolds
I have begun Nordic walking and passed by a low lying wooded area with marigolds pushing up through the tangle of dried, fallen cattails. I stopped to view and later rendered the image in an oil pastel art work on the grey, green board. I mashed the oil pastels to create the marigold flowers and the leaves. The ground was too busy and I wanted places to rest the eyes and so lightly smoothed out the ground areas. This let the fallen cattails stand out over the marigolds.
