Re: January2020 oil pastel challenge + chat

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!

Re: January2020 oil pastel challenge + chat

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

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!

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!

Re: January2020 oil pastel challenge + chat

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.

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.
