We got told by our Art teacher today to use anything we havent used before and just draw anything we picture in our minds about a Thunderstorm and without drawing it in pencil lines first.

So we had choice between Ink, Oil Paints or Pastels so I chose Pastels and this is what came out of it.

I went for the cartoon look

Interesting piece...I would always suggest not using black in pretty much any medium as it usually deadens a piece. I do like the blue and orange used would have liked to seen more usage in the background with that color scheme. This piece reminds me of a Van Gogh piece, nice line movement more impressionistic than cartoon look. Great works...

Thanks for the tips I get what you mean about using black, I should have mixed a darker blue/grey for the mountains instead will remember that for the next time that black = flat/bad on landscape.

Thanks again I will do better for my next oil pastel drawing (Might actually redo this piece again without black)

Funnily enough we had to look at Van Gogh paintings before we started with this exercise so guess it rubbed off on me :D
