Re: Oil pastels for December

Well done, Terri! So many night and low-light scenes done well this month, and this is a fine addition. That sky couldn't have been easy, but it looks great.

Hey, off topic, but Terri, I have a cyanotype photo over in the Pen and Ink forum sketchbook thread; probably still on the last page of the thread.

If you can look up the manufacturer of your specific brand of op, you should be able to get a list of available colors with the degree of light fastness of each one.

That's an interesting idea. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll try that
Oh, Mungyo has been keeping silent about the lightfastness of the artist grade OPs... so I have to find it out with my own tests :P

Re: Oil pastels for December

Terri, very nice and deep sky! Seems like there is mist over the hills, it adds mystery to the picture

Thanks, Lamar! I did a lot of blending in the sky, except at the top, where I let the texture of the paper peep through for added stars.

I looked over in the Pen and Ink sketchbook thread - are you referring to the beautiful blue cat drawing? I love it!

I'm afraid of ink, I freely admit. . Too permanent. I like being able to correct my many mistakes! A lot of impressive work over there, including yours.

Terri, no, not the blue cat. In my post on the last page in that thread there's a stippled pen-and-ink drawing of a man standing in water. I remembered that I h ad a cyanotype photograph that the old drawing was based on, so I added the photo in the bottom of the same post.

It's one of the very few alt-process photos that I've made in my life.

Re: Oil pastels for December

Oh, thanks for the link! I was way off.

This is a proper cyanotype, beautifully executed. You achieved very deep tonality here. I agree with your comment about the haunting nature of the subject matter. It's intriguing! Having water in the image makes the cyanotype process a natural fit, too, which doesn't always happen.

Great job, and I'm so happy you shared this!

Btw, your stippled ink technique looks great, too. I've always enjoyed playing with the same negative or photo, using different photographic techniques. It's amazing how they can change their character, isn't it?

Re: Oil pastels for December

Thanks for looking, Terri Glad you liked it. I made a digital negative from the original 4x6 photo. Any quality you see there is beginner's luck.

Apologies to others for going off topic.

Re: Oil pastels for December

Nice collection, but don't think I'll get one finished tonight.

Have to see what I can do in the New Year

Re: Oil pastels for December

Merry Christmas to everyone! Hope you had a nice day

I got a very timely present (even if we Russians don't celebrate Christmas on this day) - my Amazon order arrived yesterday, it's Ken Leslie's "Oil Pastels" book and a 12 pcs set of Neopastels!
I'm very happy cause Neopastels cost almost twice as much in Russia and the book is just impossible to get. Awesome Christmas/New Year present

I have one more Christmas-style work coming - hopefully can finish it till December 31st
