Lovely reference, Tali. I'm looking forward to seeing your painting. You can also post wip's if you wish to.

Nicely done Christel! Wonderful detail work on the branches and I like how the water looks frozen over, just like in the photo.

Re: December Oil pastels chat and challenge

I especially like the Frozen Stream painting by Christel - inspiring and nostalgic.

The warm glow in the forest snowfall reference photo caught my eye and inspired this effort.

18 x 12 in Portfolio water soluble OPs (WSOP?) on gessoed paper.


I think these photos are great to ease the effort of composition and allow concentration on learning how to use the medium.

Regards,
Trier

Beautiful work, Christel - your tree branches are excellent!

Trier, I'm becoming a big fan of your style. I like your bold colors and expressive outlines - very cool!

Re: December Oil pastels chat and challenge

Here's my take on the little frozen river scene. 12x12 inches on cork tile. Senns/mungyos...Kept it loose, impressionistic. Cork is fun to paint on. Thanks for the photos Christel!

Re: December Oil pastels chat and challenge

Thanks Rich, Trier and Terri! I guess I have to follow the photo as I last saw so much snow in 1970 in Germany
Trier - love your interpretation of the snow scene
Rich - super impressionistic frozen river. Cool colors! Cork?

That's awesome, Rich! No snow down here in the SE USA, but the temperatures have gone way down, so it's cold but sunny. Beautiful day!

I know you're completely used to it and it's natural in your part of the world, Christel. But it still seems like y'all have it backwards down there!

Hope you stay cool in the heat and humidity!

Re: December Oil pastels chat and challenge

I went to help hubby feed the sheep. This little one came running behind the vehicle and fell down exhausted. I brought it back to its mommy

Early morning temps aren't all that high yet
