When posting your art work, please tell us your support type, the size, and brands of oil pastels used. Any special touches you use, such as mediums or pencil work, are also of interest. Letís share techniques and learn from each other!


Here are some photos!

A few more photos:


Odin, God of Wisdom (because of course!):





Michigan lighthouse:






Point aux Barques lighthouse:









Vacationers:








Waterfall:







All these images are my own, so feel free to use them as you wish. I included some black & white, because that's what I shoot a lot of (film) and also it's fun to come up with whatever color palette you wish, with nothing to influence your choices beyond the subject matter.



So, letís get busy getting our hands dirty, shall we?

Thanks, Rich and Raj!

Raj, looks great so far. The drawing of the house is spot on, and I think you've already done a good job with the background trees.

Looking forward to seeing more!

Great selection. The swallows and pretty in pink are looking good at the moment. But ... I am doing a boat scene at the moment so that is also calling.

Re: September 2018 Oil Pastel Challenge and Chat

Hey Terri, I have started. Layer one one, using mostly student quality OPs. Couldn't create the wall, just couldn't create the colour, so that area distracts hugely.

Am waiting for some new professional quality for layer two.

ATM it looks like a cooking pot. Hoping to change that as well.

Another WIP picture of the lighthouse painting from today's work. I used white oil painting for the highlight on the edge of the building. I also used a brown pencil for creating bricks effect.

Not again. Even used my computer. I couldn't get this one to post as a new thread, but did see my nest in this thread. This should be a nest

Lamar - great so far!
Jennie - love your swallows! I'll comment on the faces in your separate thread.
Here is my waterfall using MiTeintes(lemon yellow) and a mix of Treeline and Pentel, A4. I'm getting used to the Treeline now

Raj, this is coming along nicely! Your palette is really perfect so far, and the house is looking great.

Jennie, I see the swallows! I think it looks better than a cooking pot. The feathers already are starting to look good.

Lovely job on the waterfall, Christel! I think you've tamed those Treeline op's, this is beautiful!
