This weeks word challenge had three: blue and it’s complement, cirrus clouds and movement. I’ve wanted to do a panoramic scene for the longest time that was all about the sky. I figured this was the opportunity that I was looking for.
The oil pastel was painted on a gessoed hardboard (7.5 x 13.75) that was prepared with an acrylic underpainting. The scene went through about 5 major changes along the way, and while I might change a thing or two down the road (like building up the darks in the immediate foreground) – for today I’m calling it a day and have posted for you to see.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!! I’m looking forward to started several autumn scenes I have in mind ~ yeah, got to love Fall colors!
