Beautiful set of images, Christel! Red is definitely challenging, but in the Northern hemisphere, it's winter right now, so a warm color is a great idea. :)

Thinking cap on. Happy New Year to my fellow oil pastelists!

Hi Christel, I like your theme! Agree with Terri, red is a great color to bring in our chilly grey winter :lol:

After completing my latest December challenge work I feel I do need to get down to basics :) using colors, OP tecnhique - all this. So I will concentrate on simple and experimental sketches and stay away from complicated subjects coming months. But I will try to paint that little monk boy from this month's selection ;)

Happy New Year to you all, guys! :heart:

Hello everyone.
I've not tried a challenge before so........do I have to use one of the images provided or can I produced any Red themed painting.
Have a good weekend.

Hi, Crechat39! We put up various images to fit each month's theme most of the time - but not all! So you are free to do whatever you want with RED.

Happy to have you join us! :)

Thanks Tuscanny,
Will put my thinking cap on.
When I started out I tended to buy sets of pastels. They tended to be easier to get hold of. I found that of all the colours the one that tended to linger was red.

Looks terrific! You've captured the angle of the head, and her outfit, perfectly.

Funny, I thought your first one would be of the fox, or one of the other animals in this challenge. :angel:

Christel, just discovered this forum and glad you are part of it. I like your works and hope to participate in some challenges. I like this challenge of using red but I just started working with ops and hope to continue. Sometimes I need a reminder when you have these challenges.
