I was focusing on conveying mood through lighting. I blocked in the scene en plein air (on location) with open acrylics. Then later I used my photos from that day to finish this piece with oil pastels. I'm enjoying how the texture of the canvas is emphasized when oil pastels lightly overlay the acrylic underpainting. I believe the textures created add to the dreamy quality of light in this painting.
