WDE feb 24 Pelican WIP

I figured I might be able to squeeze enough time out of my weekend to work on the pelican.

It is still a work in progress and this is about the two hour stage. I'm working with oil pastels on an 8 by 10 inch canvas panel. The oil pastels are a brand new set of Senneliers which arrived yesterday, just in time for this project.


I hope to be able to work on it some more this evening.
Suggestions for improvement welcome.

Re: WDE feb 24 Pelican WIP

It's bedtime, and I think this is my final version. I'll look at it with fresh eyes tomorrow.



I felt all that blue green required some red, hence the reddish rock.

Re: WDE feb 24 Pelican WIP

Agree the red rock rocks. Don't you love the Senn's? They are so much like butter after other oil pastels. Also like their soft pastels for the same reason.

Re: WDE feb 24 Pelican WIP

Thank you Christine and Paula.

For quite awhile I've just been using Erengis and Gray pas Specialists. I had forgotten how soft and how much easier the Senns are to spread around on canvas. The Erengis and Gray Pas required a lot of elbow grease to work into the canvas. In comparison the Senns were pure pleasure. Of course the Senns are considerably more expensive.

Thank you Robert, you snuck in there. We were typing at the same time.

Re: WDE feb 24 Pelican WIP

I took a better photo in daylight today.. My last photo was under artifical light and the focus wasn't very sharp.


Also based on a tip from another artist, I think I have my white balance better adjusted.
