Waiting for Him - oil pastel figurative painting




Oil pastel is so wonderfully versatile. It can be a drawing or painting medium and it has no dust. This painting is 7 x 5" on Ampersand Pastelbord.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Love the subtle value and colour changes on this one Connie. One day I mean to try oil pastels myself.

Thanks so much for your comment. Oil pastels are so easy and forgiving to work with - I hope you will give them a try!

Wonderful oil pastel painting, the effects looks like oil painting.

Thank you! One of the things I love about oil pastels is their versatility. They can be made to look like oils, or depending on the support, they can appear more like soft pastels. Thanks for stopping by!
