Outburst of Colours

Did this with my new oil pastels. Some say it's a tropical flower, I think it is some kind of fireworks:

Re: Outburst of Colours

I'll go with the flower one. Not much better than to break in your new art tools, except maybe sharing it with us. Thanks!

Thanks Dave for taking the time to look and comment! However I am bit irritated by your "not much better than..." - I hope it was okay that I posted it, although it was only an experiment and should have been kept better in my drawer... sometimes I wish my English was better!

Please take no offence from my remark as it was an encouragement to share whatever you are interested in sharing. Perhaps I could have said nothing better than ... except to share...

Anyway my intent was. new art tools - Joy!! Sharing what you do with new tools - more joy (shared).

Sorry for any misunderstanding. looking for more posts from you. Thanks for replying and opening up how you read my response.

BTW I could feel the oilyness on my fingers as I looked at your work.

Re: Outburst of Colours

I like the energy in this one and experiments are very welcome.

What Dave said is a common idiom for us which means it is difficult to find something better than, so he is saying a positive thing with that comment.

Re: Outburst of Colours

Dave and ~Jon: thanks for explaining your comment and for your encouraging words which are very much appreciated!
Actually the oil pastels have paper wrapped around them so drawing/painting with them is a cleaner job than painting with soft pastels. And I like the way they run over the paper!
