Another Nude on Green - original oil pastel nude painting

Another favorite art pastime - nudes drawn quickly and without much thinking and analyzing.  I LOVE painting this way - it just makes my heart sing!  A dab of color here, a line there - it probably sounds haphazard and, of course, not everything turns out the way I'd like - but
it's still a real joy.  This painting is on 5 x 7" grey Pastelbord.   Thanks so much for stopping by Hackberry Street Studio! Sold

Just beautiful! I love your oil pastels! I started using oil pastels full time around November of last year. I use mostly Neopastels but also have some Holbeins and Senneliers. Do you have any tutorials? I would love to learn how to use ops better. Right now I am doing florals and concentrating on the larger shapes, learning how to blend, etc. I use Pastelbord as I love the texture. Any tips you can offer would be wonderful! your blog is awesome! I watch your art on DailyPainters too! Hugs! Rose

Hi Rose and thank you so much! I visited your blog and LOVE your oil pastel paintings. Plus the name, ahhh, it's so beautiful! It's a real treat to visit a blog that's devoted to oil pastels. I have an oil pastel blog, too - I can rave on and on about oil pastels. Maybe I'll just email you - there's probably not enough room here for me to sing praises to ops. Thank you again for stopping by - see you soon!

Dear Connie.. thank you for visiting my blog! You are so sweet to take time out of your day to do so. I went through your blog all morning and I am so thrilled to know that you and I are using the same kind of materials (Neopastels and Pastelbord). I hope to hear from you soon. Sent you a regular email with questions.. but please take your time. I am just pleased to have found you! xo
