When it comes to enthusiasm for nature and wildlife, artists are some of the most fervent champions. Deb Gengler-Copple has chosen oil and pastels to express her self artistically and to communicate a powerful connection with nature and wildlife.
My work is representational with a slight impressionistic edge. I set the mood by playing with background color, and using the pastel like a big loose brush. I add layers of pastel color to bring out the light in the scene and the spirit of the animal.
