Mixed Media Study - Oil Pastel, Watercolor and Acrylic Paint

This painting is not a finished painting. I'm posting it now to create the opportunity to see it this way as compared to what it will be when it's finished.
I am excited about this because it started out as a quick splash painting w/thalo blue and gesso, and it's a landscape (my favorite). I slowly worked in watercolor and oil pastels to get it to where it is now. I am still waiting for it to dry completely.
I plan to work in darker tones to create arial perspective, and to omit the tree trunk in the lower right corner.

This is not cheating. Very beautiful, and unique - a style that it is yours. I like the fish (yes, I see a fish), in the last post as well.

Oops - saw the post before, I see a moonlit lady and moss. A multi-purpose painting depending upon your mood - I like it!

I think this is lovely. I really like the texture and the colors, as well as the movement in it. I'm looking forward to seeing what else you do with it. nancy

Your art style is gorgeous! Very strong colors, and a lot of 'textures' =) I love them all

I think it's beautiful! Of course, I'm biased as I love the color. :) I also love the textures, too. Nicely done.
