View Full Version : Untitled oil pastel

I've previously done two pieces using oil pastels. I love the medium, and immediately wanted to do more. This one is untitled, and I love leaving the interpretation to the viewer, however, I wanted to give a bit of a backstory. More often than not, before I start painting I put on a few songs. Sometimes they're upbeat energetic songs and sometimes they're songs that have gotten me to think about things. so i sat down and put a song on called "Rainbow" by Kesha. It's a gorgeous song that showcases her voice and i recommend giving it a listen. I closed my eyes, reflected on some things, opened them and started on it. The colors have to do with the all of the emotions felt when I reflect on the love I have for somebody. I hope they speak.

As always C & C is welcome especially as this is my 3rd oil pastel piece. Done on bristol vellum.

I'd call this one Enveloping, because that is what it does upon first glance.

@kreativek Thank you! I love that

@boafamily thank you so much. "Woven" may be a good name for it too 🙂
