Summer skies

Darkening Skies, 6x8" Oil pastel on paper
©2009, Helen Read - Ready to mat and frame


Another small study of atmosphere, color, perspective using oil pastel. These studies handle differently than oil paint. I like the effect, and they are a good way to work out compositional structure, color harmonies, and other effects that color produces.

While I am doing these, I am working on some larger oil landscapes as well! I'll be posting that soon!

I love all the Landscapes you've done in pastel, Helen. You render the atmosphere so well it's practically tangible..

Thank you, Mary! I am enjoying these studies as well as working in oil on larger ones! And - I'm learning a lot along the way! :)
