My goal with this painting was to create a quiet, but forgotten subject – what better way than to illustrate an abandoned windmill along a marshy river. I found a perfect summer scene and saw winter, so you know the story . . .
Forgotten, an oil pastel (5×7) was painted on cream-tinted Mi-Teintes pastel paper using mainly Senneliers and Holbeins oil pastels. Most of the OPs were scrubbed on and then moved with clay shapers.
