As cold weather sets in and winter approaches, I found myself dreaming about some warm sunshine and tropical scenes. This is also my first EVER work in pastel. Now that I've done something simple, I'm excited to try to get creative with what oil pastels can do.
I painted a bright red, orange, and yellow tropical sunset over an ocean view. One can see the edge of a rocky beach, and gentle waves crashing. There is a lot of texture and highlights on the waves. Last, but not least, is the silhouette of a palm tree leaning gracefully toward the water.
This is a 10"x12" oil pastel painting on canvas paper. It is signed by the artist.
I'm so ready for a vacation!
