Oil Pastels on paper
I got myself a set of oil pastels a couple of months back,kept them safe in a drawer and almost forgot about them so,never gave it a try.These days I have grown a little lazy(not sure if its the hot weather or its just me) and don't feel like doing any oil or acrylic work.So,I was finally reminded of the oil pastels I bought. Immediately,I was so excited to use them but had no idea what support works well for them."All Alone" is the one I tried on a paper that was fairly smooth textured.Well,not a good experience working on this surface.This was also my first entry to the DPW's paint your vegetable challenge.
For my second attempt I used a rough textured paper and could feel the difference as I could work in layers.Used turpentine for blending the colors.It felt so good to use a new medium and what I loved about working with pastels is it was surprisingly quick.
Any suggestions on using pastels would really be helpful and would be highly appreciated.:-)
