Darkening Skies, 6x8" Oil pastel on paper

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!
