A little late, but OK.
Oil pastel on 8x6 black sketchbook.

It is a little greener in reality.
Two things I tried that I'm not sure worked.
Not blending and letting the paper be the black mottling. (I think this worked OK)
Leaving the pencil edging for the various pieces of metal. (Leaning towards no on this one)

Anyway thanks for any feedback.

photon, wow, love the abstract quality this one has...very nicely developed in OPs, not an easy medium. Welcome to WetCanvas!

Welcome photon! :wave:

Fantastic texture! And to get such great texture with oil pastels is wonderful - I agree with Kay that they're not an easy medium :eek:

I also like seeing the layers of effort that went into this; in other words, I like being able to see your pencil edging. For me, it adds to the overall painting. What a joyful piece you've created!!! I hope to see more of your work each week here!

Lovely! But it could use some dark lining IMHO

Nice contrast of bright color against the gray background. It really makes it pop.
