Smile Thank you

Thank you for sharing your experiences with oil pastels! The information on issues such as lightfastness, assorted surfaces, etc has been very helpful.

It is fun to experiment but also very helpful to not have to "reinvent the wheel"!

After several years of reading your collective wisdom, it is super to be a small piece in this community. I look forward to more learning.

It is a somewhat intimidating step, especially after seeing the photo Mira posted on a day of plein air painting! I was awestruck at how fashionable you looked, Mira!

So, if sartorial elegance is a requirement, I'll quietly shuffle off!

Mary Flora

Re: Thank you

Welcome to the OP forum at WC, Mary Flora! We're happy to have you join us!

Learning a new art medium can be intimidating, I agree with you! I was an absolute newbie when I first joined, and this is such a great place to learn. Our members are awesome, and we're all here to help.

Hope to see you post some of your work! Don't be shy, none of us were born with OP's in our hands. Have fun!

Re: Thank you

Terri, Christel, and, Sarah, thank you for the welcome and encouragement!

Christel, I've often thought you'd make an awesome neighbor - you have such a varied creative group of works. How do you ever find time to sleep?

Sarah, I've learned a lot about form looking at your work. Your portraits also have such beautiful skin.

Terri, what? You weren't born with OP's in your hand? Another legend bites the dust!

Well, Greggo, Jon, and Virginia all pointed me in the right direction to learn uploading....time to try over in studio!

Re: Thank you

Hi Mary Flora and welcome to the Oil Pastels Forum!

Haha you made me chuckle with your comments about my "fashionable looks" I do enjoy "fancy" dresses, but normally wear jeans to plein air paintings

I've been reading WC for a while too before I decided to join the club
Hope you'll feel at home here and post your works often

Re: Thank you

Thank you, Mira! You all make it easy to feel at home! Wetcanvas is full of thoughtful people from all over the world.

So much talent and knowledge generously shared...

I felt better when you mentioned wearing jeans, but I suspect you have a fashionable flair that totally escapes my jean wearing.

Happy painting!

Mary Flora
