Another Oil Pastel of an Island Landscape -a day painting
After a few thumbnail value sketches I drew the image onto illustration board. I fixed the pencil and then added hard oil pastel to the values. Once set after using turpentine to spread the values I began to layer the Sennelier oil pastels to complete the painting. Because I worked quickly the strokes became more lively. Still, I have tried to create one of those quiet, meditative places that are everywhere on the island.
