Spring meadows – oil pastel study on location

oil pastel landscape, Schmie, plein air study on paper

Finally , after long last, spring seems to become real, the sun is shining and temperatures climb to an acceptable level. Even small spots of blue sky can be seen and if the weather forecast is true this time it will last until the weekend. The grass is growing and turned green. Some cherry trees are already blooming, but the main outburst of white and pink in the fruit tree meadows is yet to come during this week. Also the woods start to get greener slowly.

I painted with my usual set of oil pastels on a sheet of paper primed with a mixture of green oil colors.
