Sketch of Kristi - original oil pastel portrait sketch
This sketch was done from a sketch from life - so, a sketch from a sketch, I guess. My joy in doing this was that I used carton paper (about 12 x 9") from Judson's Guerilla Painter - so wonderful and so like that used by the impressionists. I have always loved that look - as if it were done on cardboard, but I could never find anything like they used, without actually having to resort to cardboard. Which I would love to do, but I know it's a no-no.
Check out my oil pastel blog to see my latest flamenco dancer. I usually like to post oil paintings or drawings on Hackberry Street Studio and use most of my oil pastels for my oil pastel blog, but
I am currently going crazy trying to get some oil paintings finished and some of them just won't cooperate. Oh well. Thanks so much for stopping by!
