Coming to a close with my study of rocks and boulders, here’s #14. This particular scene attracted me because of the wall of rocks and what looks like a boulder doorway . . . thought this could be interesting for the upcoming Halloween holiday.
Secret Doorway, an oil pastel (5×7) was painted on black Mi-Teintes pastel paper on the rougher side for its deep texturing. Black paper was used on purpose so that the overall painting would take on a darker appearance – I think it worked, and the papers’ texture really comes through. Used mainly Senneliers and Neopastels, along with a painters’ knife, razor blade and clay shapers to move the paint around.
A pmp friend of mine, John Robinson, took the reference image while on a walk in the English countryside. I can only imagine how old the stone structure is . . . don’t you wonder what’s on the other side of the sealed-off doorway?
Only one more study to go ~
