Colored pencil study
Sunset, colored pencil study
©2010, Helen Read
After several weeks away from the studio, I'm back! This is a small study done on mat board - prismacolor pencils, with some turpenoid for blending. It measures about 3.5 x 6". I was using a reference photo I took of a sunset we saw while driving through Illinois... so, perhaps it will become a
larger painting. One of my growing artistic interests is painting the sky with authority. This was small, fun, and yet - no where near the results I would want from oil. Besides this, I've been working on a drawing (pencil on clayboard) since returning home. I'll post the work on that very soon.
