There was an interesting discussion in my previous post regarding the usage of oil pastels.
So here’s another one. Again, I used some acrylics underneath and it seems to have enhanced the texture. It’s on paper.
Thanks for looking.
Triss, oil pastels are made by several different manufacturers, like any other medium, and so they will have varying degrees of opacity. It takes awhile to try a few different kinds, which also means financial outlay. A lot of artists will write them off because of the investment involved - and that doesn't even include finding a good paper you like!Gorgeous marks and colours! Also really fascinating to see how the varying opacity of the oil pastels adds so much interest here (lack of opacity is one of the things I find vexing with oil pastels!).
Hey Susan, the clowns managed to escape the tremendous pressure of those oil crayons at the last minute. But I’m sure I’ll catch them on the next piece of paper. Much appreciated!!Is that one of your wonderful clowns hiding underneath? Maybe not, but anyway I do like the 'mark making', as Greggo used to call it, and the saturated palette. Another good one!
