What do you think when you come across a fenced area? Doesn’t the scene usually invoke a sense of mystery, perhaps we get a little curious?
Fenced Out, an oil pastel (8×10) was painted on Mi-Teintes gray-tinted pastel paper with Senneliers and Neopastels OPs. I needed a surface that could handle a lot the abuse of scraping with a painters knife and razor blade, the paper passed the test nicely. A reference photograph from John Robinson of pmp was used for inspiration.
I was curious while painting this piece. It was a great winter-woodsy scene, but the fence – well I couldn’t stopped wondering why the fence? What was down the path?
Have a great weekend . .
