Many thanks Redsy,Dyin, Pilan and Patricia... Good point Patricia..think it's worth a try

Here's the daytime pic, the colours shown here are virtually spot on.




Bet you're sick of looking at these now... I know I am

Thanks for looking folks and for all the wonderful feedback and comments.

Cheers,
Mo.

This is a WAY better pic! It's really great. I couldn't even see the leaves in the other one. Just for curiosity's sake...what are your thoughts about the finished piece...and what are your goals for the next piece? And how happy are you with the OPs? Are you, or did you put a fixative on it? Everything I've read says the OPs never really dry and there will be no way to remove dust unless it's fixed or framed with glass/plexiglass. Thanks for being patient with all the questions!

I'm not only gobsmacked I'm overwhelmed

Really folks, I've never in my life before had such a response to one of my paintings... is it because it's done in oil pastels?
Whatever, I cannot get over the number of responses and views on my Drums!

Thankyou, thankyou , thankyou everyone... I hope that you have all enjoyed the WIP, and hope it's been of use to all those using oil pastels, I'm still learning this medium, I'm finding new things every day with them, it's so versatile.. a beautiful medium, it can be as soft as pastels , as flowing as oils, as thin as water-colour, or just plain sketchy. ... marvellous.


Just a little note to Dyin..

I don't have a next piece to mind at the moment...but....My goals are to master oil pastels as much as I can...

I didn't and won't use a fixative, I really don't think it's needed...OP's yes never really dry out because of the wax content in them, they harden however and become very firm to the touch it really isn't a problem, once the painting is finished, whether, stored or framed behind glass, they will be resting, and if framed, as with all paintings, they should not be exposed to direct sunlight, otherwise there is no reason I can think of why they shouldn't last a lifetime and beyond.

My thanks to you all once again.


Cheers,
Mo.

Mo - yu should send a copy of this pic to Caran D'Ache themselves, to show how brilliantly you have used their product.

Hi Mo,

I arrive a bit late at this thread.
Most has been said and it contains a heap of information.
You've set yourself quitte a task doing this WIP and you've done a very good job at it providing a great OP demo.
And I love your blenders smart and simple and I will certainly try them.

Dick
