It’s been a while since I’ve posted on my blog because I have been locked in the studio staying focused on completing an oil pastel painting called, “A Rough Sea.” It was just finished this morning.
A couple of weeks ago I posted, “Rough Sea Study” as a subject that I was working on to see whether it would make for an interesting painting. Once I started the subject in a larger size the piece had a mind of its own and went through many changes from the original study, which was not a bad thing because improvements were made.
Several notable changes: the sky became dramatic, rocks were added, and the sliver of beach was eliminated and replaced with more water coming into the foreground.
I so wanted to start back up painting landscapes, but this painting kept calling for me to finish before I moved to another subject. Glad I did, there were many challenges and new areas to explore with this piece.
Have a wonderful weekend!! Mary
