January 15, 2008 Prime Hook Refuge Winter

8x11, pastel on wallis, $100. plus ship and tax
I began this one last night. This split complementary color scheme is obsessing me. This time I under painted in orange. I pulled in one forbidden color at the end when I couldn't seem to make it work. If you click on it to enlarge you will see the awesome colors in the water. I am staring to want to paint another huge one. But I wonder if I should revert back to oils since pastels are so challenging to frame (due to the need for glass.) I wonder if I could have as much fun with oil alone.
