Morning View, an oil pastel painting (5×10) is of an empty harbor during winter months. The image I based this painting off of reminded me of how quiet Maine would get every winter after summer visitors would leave for the season. It was a favorite time of the year for me.
The painting was done on a gesso-prepared hardboard, with Holbeins and Mungyo oil pastels and I used clay shapers and a painters knife to move the OPs around the surface. Buildings, gulls or the lonely lobster boat heading out to sea for its daily catch were all left out because in this case I wanted to focus on the harbor water and back-hills – I’ll let the viewer fill in the blanks.
