Musician in The Park Oil Pastel by Dominic White

Oil pastel painting of a woman playing cello in a park in Portland, Maine. This is my first oil pastel where I experimented with a grascale under painting to get the values first.

An underpainting is a good way to map out your values, especially when you have a busy background taht you still want the fore ground to pop out from.
