Here is second of my personal challenge – painting 15 pieces of rocks/boulders. It’s a great refresher and study because rocks/boulders can be interesting, but a difficult subject to paint while trying to capture form, texture and colors.
My latest oil pastel study of rocks/boulders (4.50″ x 5.75″) painted on Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper (gray tinted). The brands of OPs used were mainly Senneliers and some Mungyo-Gallery – both soft and go on this paper very easily, they were mainly spread with #2 firm clay shapers and my fingers. The paintings will be kept small in this study, because it’s more the subject that I’m concentrating on and not a full landscape scene. The ocean water was added to seat the rocks.
A time-frame was set for this study of one-hour and looking at the finished WIP, I can see areas that could be developed more using lower values to give more textures to the rocks. As I review this finished study I can clearly see areas to be emphasized when I do paint a full ocean scene.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for checking in.
