Bench at the Lily Pond
10.75" x 16"
Oil pastel on paper
I decided to try a more ambitious scene with the oil pastels. This is larger than I usually paint, but the nice thing about the pastels is you don't have to consider drying time. I worked on this in several sessions, with a pretty tight underdrawing.
Apparently I forgot to take a picture before I started working, so the background is already in place.
I think I might like the drawing better than the painting.
