Norwegian Sunset

Just finished this drawing using oil pastels of a gorgeous Norwegian sunset we watched whilst on holiday last December. I would normally use chalk pastels for a sunset as they are easier to blend with and found this was a real challenge. I don't think I have quite captured the slight movement of the water and the depth of colours in the sunset. I think it may be time to start getting the paint brushes out and creating some movement on canvas. As much as I enjoy working with Oil pastels, I also feel restricted by the limited colour palette available that cannot compete with the range of shades, tints and tones that can be mixed with paint.
