Cave and Reflections, Palau

Oil Pastel on Paper, 20.5 x 14.5 cm, 16/11/16

This is an Oil Pastel drawing of a small cave in the rocks of the coastline. It interested me because of the contrast between the darker reflections cast by the cave and the bright reflections of the rocks and vegetation. I also liked the many other darker colours that revealed themselves on closer inspection. These were colours and details that I hadn’t noticed in my other pictures as I focused on the brighter colours of the plants and water. As the water level lowered it revealed how much of the rock has been worn away by the ocean over the years and showed a new variety of coloured rock. I also like how it could be a shelter from the sun and is partially hidden by the over-hanging vegetation.
