Hi Everyone,

After 6 years of frustration with Printmaking (well, the first few years were fun- the last couple have been block after block!), I've decided to go back to my "old love" of Oil Pastels for a bit. :heart: This is 10 x 8- a mix of Cray Pas, Caran D'Ache and Senneliers- on Canson Art Board. Lela, my new pup, is the model- she has this raccoon stuffed animal that she just loves to maul, lol. :)

I'm trying to "loosen up" and be a more expressionistic in my work than I have in the past. I wanted the underneath-sketch to show through and also wanted to incorporate a bit of the paper (or, board I should say )showing through a la the Whiteline Woodcut technique in Printmaking. C & C welcome.

Oh, also more pics on my blog (http://jenniferzalewski.com/blog/2011/09/17/coon-dawg-oil-pastel/) if you are interested. :)

This is the first time I've been on the AW forum since I think my first year on WC. Animals rule! :thumbsup:
