Today I tried my hand painting a silhouette of a large Oak Tree with the sun setting in the background.
This oil pastel is an 8×10 painted on Mi-Teintes gray tinted pastel paper. I’ve wanted to paint several silhouettes but have always put it off – so I decided this 15 day challenge gave me a good opportunity to give it a shot.
Rushing to complete my deadline, I can see on the bottom-left side the cloud structure near to the sun setting needs a bit better shaping. I’ll try to scrape it out and re-paint but I’m sure the OPs have stained the paper sufficiently enough that it may be too late. It’s an experiment, so I’ll be giving it a go tomorrow after the oil pastels have had a chance to harden overnight.
Hope you have a lovely weekend. Thanks for checking in ~
