Red Ribbon - original oil pastel portrait painting by Connie Chadwell

I've been so busy painting for upcoming shows and getting started on spring planting, that I decided to post another of my small, quick studies that I love doing.  This one is 7 x 5" on Pastelbord.  Thanks so much for visiting Hackberry Street Studio!

Hi Connie

I’ve thought of working with oil pastels, I even bought some but they don’t do a fraction of what yours do - not by a long shot. But maybe yours are done with oil sticks? Anyway your work is beautiful! That’s mainly what I wanted to say!

Hi Marcia - these are oil pastels and I've found that removing the paper and turning the stick on its side works best. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your nice comment!
