Hi everyone, my name is Christel and I'll be hosting the Oil Pastel Monthly Challenge for December 2013.

The 'challenge' is for ALL abilities and you can experiment with new techniques, just sketch or leap out of your comfort zone and try an unfamiliar subject. It's entirely up to you as long as 75% of your painting is completed with oil pastels.

You're free to post as you go, even if a 'WIP' to show us your process, which we love to see, or if you get stuck and need help and advice. We are all friendly and happy to help. We don't bite!

When you post your finished piece it's really useful if you state
The type of support you used including any surface prep,
the finished size of your painting or sketch,
the brand of Oil Pastels used and whether you used anything under the OP as an underpainting or wash. Other mediums may be used to compliment, but the work must be primarily Oil Pastels.
It's not mandatory, we are just a nosey bunch.

Looking forward to having some fun with this challenge, can't wait to see the fabulous oil pastels. With that here are the photographs I've selected for this month.

Ok, here goes the weirder of the paintings for today in bare wc paper 30x40cm, Jaxon OP's, a 6H pencil and a blending rubber thingy. And a nail.

It was fun doing the kingfisher even struggling with the values on its back. I should have been less colour happy and left me some highlights. Since the picture was taken I added more twinkle to the eye and a tad more blue in the tail.

A note to Jaxon: your white sucks.

Gosh, this is beautiful and has some attitude!
As for the white... I believe Sennelier white still be the best out there. And whitest.

tuscanny

Thanks Mary.
Gosh, you are so fast. What a beauty. Plenty of time for another one?

GOSH

Thanks, aolaranora and tuscanny. And thank you, Christel for hosting this month's challenge.
I should have left blank some areas, even if I had Sennelier white. Or a nice little Holbein :D
I started another one but it's not going so well.

Beautiful GOSH. The feather definition is really gorgeous, as well as your color choices. I agree with Tatiana Senneliers is the whitest, but also the most opaque and thickest in application.

This otter painting turned out to be very limited palette.:( A3 sketch paper.

C+c welcome.
I've not painted a snow scene in ops before. Any tips?
Christel

GOSH
12-04-2013, 06:37 AM
It's lovely, tuscanny. Perhaps if you worked on the values it would help bring it out more.
The only advice I know about snow scenes is this:

The weather outside is frightening
But the fire is so delightful
Since we have no place to go

Let it snow
Let it snow
Let it snow

tuscanny
12-04-2013, 07:30 AM
Thanks Gosh. Ill have a look at the values. we've had some good rain and tbe temperature is already 29'C. No snow here.

Christel, love the Otter - I think you did a great job. The texture with the fur is very good, looks soft and full - that's really nice. Beautiful facial features.

I'm not bothered by the limited palette at all - your color choices all depend on what you want in the outcome. In the reference there is a fair amount of medium-to-lower valued grays as the base of his fur coat, with light-grey being the highlights. You'll notice (in the ref.) on the right-side of his body there is more shadow so the values are lower.

Personally I wouldn't change the Otter at all - he's cute, well formed and you used your color choices effectively.

Snow is like painting clouds, sea foam and sand. In that it's not white (except for some highlights), but rather soft/quiet colors with values creating form. Snow reflects colors from the sky and local colors from the landscape - in some cases artists will exaggerate the colors. If you look at old masters snow scenes (use a magnifying glass) to see closely how they used their values and colors to form white snow. I hope that this helps.

tuscanny
12-04-2013, 09:32 AM
Thanls Mary. I'm going to try a snow scene. hope it works.

GOSH
12-04-2013, 09:57 PM
The otter beckoned a try, after the wonderful work here but I guess I am not an otter person. Prairie dog mixed with sea lion, perhaps.

All work done with Jaxon OP's on Hahnemühle wc paper without underlayer of gesso, which makes for an unforgiving canvas.

The otter was done on 24x32cm paper and I used a Cretacolor Sepia Light oil pencil to attempt to fix something or another, the most interesting man in the world was done on 30x40cm, outlined first with a simple 6H pencil and then just shoveling Jaxon color like a drunken sailor. I put the WIP for this one to give you a better idea why it is a good idea to take a break every now and again.

Fantastic, Gosh. You make it seem so easy. I like the colors you brought in with the otter. The portrait shows the captains tan, beard, beautifully.

Perfect Christel - really nice!

Wow GOSH, nothing like moving through the reference images in record time! Nice Otter, he looks friendly enough. You nailed the sailor, just a fantastic rendition! The image had a lot of complexities to it from his oh-so friendly face, beard, and a variety of fabrics - really nice work on each aspect. I really like your skin tones and great work on his beard. Impressive work on his eye glasses! Love this!

Pat Isaac

That's a great portrait, Gosh sand I love the face on the otter.

Fantastic otter, Christel....fur texture and whiskers are nicely done and the eyes are perfect.

12-05-2013, 10:57 AM
Thank you, Pat. There are things I would have done differently now and after laying the colour it was impossible to take it out. I played with the idea of giving the subject the rank of admiral or something and give him a white uniform. I should have done that as I prefer the first picture to the finished one....Oh well...Not bad for my first portrait in...let's see....how many years?

Wow. The otter is nicely camouflaged. I Like the way you bring in different colors for different parts. This is another aspect of art I haven't tried.

Flycatcher10
12-05-2013, 10:02 PM
Oh GOSH you are just having a ball! Real nice cubism exercise on that cute Otter - I like the composition.

So how do you determine the shapes? They are different and yet all fit together in a very interesting way. Also nice work on the color scheme.

os2013
12-05-2013, 10:37 PM
Tuscanny, I love the updated otter. Looks much better. Great job!

Gosh, great job on the captain Jim, you really captured all the nuances perfectly. It look just like him!

Thank you, the otter is a total fun piece also meant as a study. I start by following the general shape of something and then going totally random, with some subconscious dream images popping into view. Cubism has its fun parts too and some are simply abstractions (super simplified) bits and pieces of subjects that help break the ice and get something going. It's my way to get to know the materials I am working with and to hep familiarize with a given subject. Colors are usually random but with some half-donkey attempt to balance them throughout the piece.

The jellyfishes should have been cubes :evil: :evil: :evil:
(You are probably familiar with the Oil Pastel Society where there is a great rendition of an ultra similar picture of jellyfish done beautifully, btw.)

And please, don't think I am avoiding your questions. I get to miss out on replies a lot, it is not done on purpose, which is something I am trying to work on :clear:

Thank You, os2013. You are most kind.

Fantastic to see you tackle snow, wonderful results Christel. Nice color combination and looks like the street should be in Aspen Colorado. Beautiful detail work as well. You'll see that over time working with snow you'll evolve in how you bring in colors for light and shadows.

What a great badger, Gosh. You manage all of those cubist designs quite well.

Lovely snow scene, Christel and snow can be all of those colors as it reflects its surroundings.

This next one is on sandpaper. A whole new experience! I used a black academy 150 silicon carbide paper and find it much sharper in comparison to the academy 150 aluminium oxide sand paper. Both are priced the same. The student grade ops are more translucent than the artist grade, especially the white, and I had to add white pastel.
http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/07-Dec-2013/1256189-lamp1.jpg
The silicon carbide is also very reflective as seen in my photo.

GOSH
12-07-2013, 05:00 AM
Wow, tuscanny! You did a wonderful job with the still life, capturing the warmth of the scene and the shapes of the objects perfectly, especially when there are so many elispes :D
As for the choice of canvas, how about that? ;)
There are, of course, finer grits that may be more gentle on the blenders. When I first used the Colorfix and some Wallis papers I was loving putting colour and blending it around with my bare fingers...

tuscanny
12-07-2013, 07:37 AM
My choice of canvas? I definitely won't be using my fingers on these! I've purchased a few sheets and will not give up on sandpaper now. I like how it grabs the ops. I might just look at a finer grade too.

Flycatcher10
12-07-2013, 11:28 AM
Fantastic painting Christel - so glad you're exploring new surfaces shows the great versatility of oil pastels. Fine sandpaper is another wonderful surface to use - I think you'll enjoy it.

Beautiful use of your darks and working the warm glow in this scene. Nice detail work on the bricks and good choice of colors for the reflections and highlights on the dishes. The dishes and lamp ellipse lines are excellent. Love this one! :thumbsup:

It's impressive and amazing to see how quickly you have learned how to paint and manipulate OPs. It's exciting to see!

GOSH

Well, Uart has acid free artist grade sandpaper for the more serious project. Grades from 240 to 1800. Places like Dick BLicks sells it.

tuscanny
12-07-2013, 12:48 PM
Aw, shucks, Mary. I've had good teachers and lots of help here.
Thanks, Gosh. I'll look at our local hardware store for some finer paper. No Uart(?) nor Dick Blick(?) in this country as far as I know.

Hi Nikki112459 - nice to see you. Wonderful painting, you managed the table setting very well. I think you do have a great handle on working the oil pastels. Lovely folds, reflections and good choice of colors.

Nikki: If you don't mind post any paintings you have that are not done based on the monthly challenge reference images, as a regular new thread in the Oil Pastel Studio - this way everyone can enjoy your work. If you paint from one of the reference images for the monthly challenge, by all means post under this thread.

Thanks GOSH, Jiemin and Christel for your comments. I enjoyed painting this little Kingfisher so different than land or seascapes.

Hi Christel, nice truck! Like that you included some landscaping with it. I see a big difference with how the your application of OPs is responding to the sandpaper. The final painting looks very smooth - when you can paint and not have your fingers tips torn from the abrasiveness it makes a big difference in how many layers and spreading ability (soft and buttery).

tuscanny

Os2013, you've done a great painting. I especially like the head. If you want to add more detail to the feathers, try pencils or even pastels?

This is a great kingfisher, os. I like the tree trunk texture and I agree that pencils help with detail, though I think he looks just fine.
The kingfisher seems to be popular...jiemin, I also like the the change of background and your energy is there.

Thank you for comments. Regarding wing texture: whtat do you use- draw full wing in base color and then scratch/paint feather outlines and shadows, or do you work the wing feather by feather? Which is the best approach for the end result?

tuscanny
12-22-2013, 11:11 PM
Wing structure: it all depends on the size of the wing and the colors. I usually lay down my colors as best as possible, as they should appear, blend with torchon or shaper, then add detail with the second layer.

os2013
12-23-2013, 12:23 AM
Thank you Christel, that's what I tried this time too. Do you scratch through the detail or draw on top only?

tuscanny
12-23-2013, 07:56 AM
I use a multiple approach to my drawings. Sometimes I scratch, or I use pencils, or I layer. With scratching you must remember that pigments stain paper and you'll need to lay down white first if you want white lines before scratching. Then of course you can't blend deeply with torchon, only lightly with fingers. These approaches I also use for rendering fur. Finally, if you need only a hint of coloring, try pastels. Hope this all helps.
Here is a site which helped me a lot: http://www.petsinpastel.com/oilpastels.htm

I tend to do the details last with oil pencils, after the OP has set up a little.

Such a beautiful array of pictures this month. So very sorry;I really wanted to join in but I have had a really bad cold/flu and passed it to my husband. It's going now but we are both very tired and coughing still.
A very Happy New Year to you all and I look forward very much to joining in next time.
