‘ “SCENE” From A Bench Series’ – ‘In The Woods’
This series of pictures have all been done using Oil Pastels and in each one I have placed a Bench. Always the same bench but sometimes I’ve flipped it around to suit the angle of the scene. All the pictures in this series are from my imagination and are drawn to give maximum illusion to the perspective of the landscape around and create as much depth as possible in the small images. Hence the series title, ‘ “SCENE” From A Bench’ !
This picture was a lot of fun and it was the first in the series that I did. Using oil pastels in this one, especially in the dense forest, was done by layering many different colours on top of each other first, then scraping back until I was happy with the effect of light and shade. Once I was happy then I used the pastel in the conventional drawing manner to give more detail, throwing in some ornate toadstools for good measure!
