Oregon river rocks

Oregon River Rocks
pastel on wallis paper

I finally got back to painting today. Having been gone the past 6 weekends, there wasn't much time to paint, except for the pastel workshop of course. This one was started at the workshop and finished up today.

I enjoy painting rocks. It's almost like sculpting. You add a little shadow and the form of the rock changes.
Water is fun too. There's so much color in it.
Foliage is a struggle, as always. I just feel lucky when it turns out right.


  1. It's really nice, Jean. I love the different colors you used in the water. It's such a beautiful painting!

  2. Mmm, I love this one. Serene and with excellent color harmony (yellow-greens and violet...)
