Violinist Oil Pastel by macys Violinist Oil Pastel by macys
Original from: =directionsforpest's beautiful photo: Violinist

The lovely OIL PASTELS :D done in strips. 20"x20".
Took me a good few hours, no more than 6. I'm rather a quick worker when it comes to traditional arts.

It was done on white illustration board and I pasted the 3 strips on a 'black on black' board with spacing in between each strips.

-------

I got a DD!! :dance: Never did I think I would ever get one!
Man was I so happy!!!!
Just ask ~Peanut-Olive for my reaction. He saw it all.
Out of my excitement, I ran straight into the bathroom door and all you heard that moment was a :clunk: and then a :squeal:

I am just now learning about oil pastels, so when I saw this I was intimidated, and very much impressed. Gorgeous.

Hi there! I featured this gorgeous
piece here. Hope you like it! Thanks
Quick warning it is a mature collection
so probably not safe for work viewing.

This is incredible. I just went to an art workshop today and was got a very basic demonstration of oil pastel technique. At this point in my educational arc, I can't hardly imagine how this beautiful of a composition was done with them. I was having difficulties in blending colors together, and everything looks so "dirty" and muddy - how did you ever manage to keep this so clean? Do you clean your sticks after each stroke?

I also heard that using turpentine or turpenoid can yield some interesting blending effects, too, but haven't tried it yet. It that a technique you employ often?

I am fascinated. This is outstanding. I hope you have it for sale in a gallery somewhere where others can appreciate it in person.

I've been so absent from this site, I'm sorry for such a late reply. But for blending, I usually light my sticks with a lighter to soften the tip to prep it for better blending and I do wipe them down to keep them clean. Thank you :)

As a fellow oil pastel artist, I must say this is excellent! Truly, you are among the few who have mastered the medium.

Which brand did you use?
