Oil Pastel in a Rock Formation Series
On the way to our cottage, many rock formations have been blasted into in order for the road to wind itself north via Highway 11. These formations in places look formidable; in other places they remain as they have for thousands of years. I had photographed a few and wanted to use my oil pastels to create images of the rock formations. It is not so easy to park on the busy highway to get out to do a pastel work en plein air.
