I’ve wanted to paint with a limited palette for a while now, so I took an opportunity this week using the color blue as the dominant hue.
Here is my latest oil pastel painting (8×10), Blue Hills, that was painted on a gray-blue tinted Mi-Teintes pastel paper. The majority of the paint used was Senneliers that were perfect for creating the distant, hazy atmosphere that you see in the painting. My hands were stained a dark blue – ha, a bit of a mess I’d say.
I had a wonderful time painting this scene. Blue Hills was inspired by a gorgeous photograph taken by Vitor Dias a fantastic photographer with pmp.
