Nude, Reading - oil pastel figure painting

I have oil pastel on my mind, lately, because the Oil Pastel Society is holding its annual competition for members. In fact, the entries are due tomorrow and I'm in panic mode because I don't think I have anything to enter. So, I've been doing lots of oil pastels, which I love doing, and trying to find something, somewhere, that I can submit.

What I enjoyed about this painting is all the greens and blues in her skin. I love doing that, because they really are there, although this interpretation veers into neon territory, which I also enjoy. Well, I may not have anything to submit, but I sure am having a good time!

This painting is 7 x 5" on Pastelbord. Thanks for looking!SOLD
