Wow Paul! So THAT's what oil pastels are supposed to look like! :lol: :lol: :lol: I'm just starting to play around with them and struggling a bit, but yours turned out beautifully. Welcome to WDE. I agree with he others that it IS addictive, but what an amazing addiction to have!

Beautiful painting. Love your depth of color in the foreground grasses and the lighthouse there, but not really too strong a color. Good crop. Great sky.
You know your way around oil pastels. Excellent. Oh, and Welcome to WDE.
Hope to see more of your paintings.

Thank you all for your comments and the warm welcome, much appreciated.
EP.. I gave the paper a coat of white Gesso before I started with the op's.
Jean.. Keep going, you'll soon get the hang of it.

Loooooove this. The greenery and sky are fantastic! I just love the old church, as well. A perfect rendition!

Paul, Opening this was a breath of salty sea air! Very fresh and airy. Definitely NOT what my attempts at OP's looks like. Nice variety of values and colors in the grasses. Just enough detail in the lighthouse to define it without bogging down in details. Lovely!
