2018-02-14T17:47:39.726-08:00

Hi Connie, I really like this woman. She looks so natural and I love the colors you chose. Had to chuckle about the second version. I'm thinking every artist thinks, been done that so it must take self-discipline to do (boring!!! haha). Got me to thinking about if that is why apprectices first came about in service to famous artists who needed copies of their pieces. Think about it, maybe even Rembrandt hated second versions. ;-) xoxo

2018-02-14T12:58:42.576-08:00

Hi Jess - so happy you found my blog! As for oil pastels - maybe a good way to start is to just to smear them on a piece of paper - Sennelier is great for this - and treat as a sgraffito by scratching into the support underneath, making a design. That's always fun. Then try blending two colors together to get the feel of oil pastel and how it works. Sennelier is really the top brand, although I also use Caran d'Ache, Holbein and CrayPas Specialists now and then. Never had much luck with Mungyo. I always just draw a gesture or a 'sort of' figure and go from there, painting loosely and without getting too tight. Maybe toward the end, I make it more distinct, but I see so many great oil pastels that are more abstract and/or atmospheric, which is one of the wonderful things about this medium - it can be used however you want to use it. So just play around with it and I'll bet you end up loving it!
