#6 rock study. I loved painting this little scene, it’s of a place along the coast in Maine – seeing an inlet fogged in is not unusual to see in this part of Maine.
Island Cove Rocks, an oil pastel (4×6) is of a place located in Westport Island, ME, a small coastal town mid-Maine. It’s one of the idyllic, quaint places that no one would be exists today – ah, but it does and all things good, I loved going there to meet with clients. This scene reminds me so much of where I used to live in Maine – always socked in with fog, chilly oh so chilly, and the massive slabs of rock angling downward is a signature mark of glacial slit and melting ice sliding and scraping the earth from millions of years ago.
I kept this scene quiet, void of bright or vibrant colors as the fog colors everything in a dull gray. The surface is Mi-Teintes gray-tinted pastel paper using mainly Sennelier oil pastels, with clay shapers and foam insulation to move the OPs around.
