Just a small break from painting trees, here is my latest landscape.
Morning Sunrise was inspired by Viacheslav, a photographer and painter, from pmp – he showcased a warm sunrise lighting a field of grasses. I know, it doesn’t contain trees, you’re right – it was a great opportunity to work on morning colors and grasses as I contemplated my next tree study. What I loved about this particular scene was the quiet dawn not exploding with sun drenched color yet, it was just starting to wake up.
This oil pastel (9×12) was painted on Mi-Teintes gray tinted pastel paper, using mostly Senneliers, Holbeins and Neopastels. For tools I used my fingers, clay shapers, foam insulation and a razor blade for scraping. I love this paper for oil pastels, when I glide the OPs across the surface it catches and creates nice texturing.
Hope you enjoy this reprieve, onto my next tree study ~
