Oxbow Inlet

This American folk art painting is a good example of the use of oil pastels.  The sky has so much oil pastel work on it that the appearance is almost like fabric hanging over the rolling countryside in this quiet rural setting.  The work was started with acrylic, then came the tinting and re-painting of a few layers.  Then, when all the primitive shapes and forms were in place and the painting looked almost finished, the oil pastel work began.  My reason I used the oil pastels was to create a texture on the surface. I like the primitive look, almost like crayon, that it adds.  It’s something I can’t get any other way.
