Well now I finally reached the end of the 15-painting rock/boulder challenge – took a bit more time than anticipated but I’m happy that I undertook it.
The Range, (6×8) oil pastel was completed on cream tinted Mi-Teintes Pastel paper using mainly Senneliers, Neopastels and Mungyo-Gallery oil pastels. Tools included clay shapers and painting knives, many layers of paint was applied in this painting.
I selected the mountain range called, Napes Needle, because I haven’t painted a mountain range before and thought the sharp dark edges of the mountain range against of a snowy mountain range would make for an interesting contrast and give the scene some depth.
Thank you all for following along with this study – it was challenging, exasperating, exciting and thrilling. I think that 15 studies are a good amount to base on any particular subject. Hmmmmmm, wonder what the next will be . . .
