rocks and trees WDE June 18

This rather gloomy scene appealed to me. It's oil pastel 6x8, using only purples, blues and greens, on a black background. One hour.

Re: rocks and trees

Hey, Wendy, I really like this. Looks like a beautiful moonlight scene at the lake. I used to night fish for bass just a few years ago, so I spent a lot of time admiring views just like this. Great job.

Re: rocks and trees

Wendy, this is so very well done. Just one hour? Amazing. Love what you have accomplished with such few colors. But you have conveyed the mood you were going for. Your rocks are extremely well done and those pines are perfect. Great job!

Re: rocks and trees

I am a lover of pine trees.......... and I truly love these........ you have done a fabulous job with the little baby pines ........ I can feel their soft needles and smell their wonderful fragrance....... the color palette which you chose is rich and bold, and is perfect for this painting....... a lovely piece....

Just before sunset. beautifully executed, love the rocks and shore line. The palette is beautiful, as is the painting.

Re: rocks and trees WDE June 18

Is this pastels, softies or oils? If so you should cross post in the "lets get moody" project. This has a lovely feel to it. I do feel like its a moonlit evening like Deano.

Oops, I just noticed you stated this is oil pastels.

Re: rocks and trees WDE June 18

Thanks, all, for your encouragement! Today I'm wondering if it isn't a little cold... maybe I should warm up those rocks a bit. Whatcha think?

Pj, I was thinking exactly that while I was doing it, and I will!

Nothing gloomy about this. Serene, almost warm colors. I do like it.

Re: rocks and trees WDE June 18

Hi Wendy, I really like your use of colour - think I'd recognise your work anywhere! Those purples just sing out!
Might be a gloomy scene but nothing gloomy about your pic. - lovely!
That blue night sky behind the pines is sooooooo right.

I like it the way it is Wendy. Those cool colors set the mood perfectly.

Re: rocks and trees WDE June 18

You've captured a certain mysterious mood with the limited palette. I think you should leave it alone. It's very nice. Makes me want to
