KILIM GEOFOREST - A painting in soft pastels ( Malaysia )

While we were in Langkawi  ( Malaysia ) in July last year, we took a boat ride from Tanjung Rhu fishing village which took us through the mangroves and later to KILIM geoforest area, rich in flora and fauna. Beautiful carved ancient rocks, next to the blue green waters made for an amazing sight.

The scene below is on one of the islands which we visited and we spent an hour here all by ourselves.
I have used soft pastels to create this 11" x 15" painting and this time I just remembered to take a picture after my first block in of colours. After the blocking in is done I spray the painting with fixative and then I go ahead to create the further details.
