Oil Pastel Monthly Challenge January 2014

Hi everyone, my name is Mary and I'll be hosting the Oil Pastel Monthly Challenge for January 2014 - Happy New Years!!!

The 'challenge' is for ALL abilities and you can experiment with new techniques, just sketch or leap out of your comfort zone and try an unfamiliar subject. It's entirely up to you as long as 75% of your painting is completed with oil pastels.

You're free to post as you go, even if a 'WIP' to show us your process, which we love to see, or if you get stuck and need help and advice. We are all friendly and happy to help. We don't bite!

When you post your finished piece it's really useful if you state
  • The type of support you used including any surface prep,
  • the finished size of your painting or sketch,
  • the brand of Oil Pastels used and whether you used anything under the OP as an underpainting or wash. Other mediums may be used to compliment, but the work must be primarily Oil Pastels.
It's not mandatory, we are just a nosey bunch.

Looking forward to having some fun with this challenge, can't wait to see the fabulous oil pastels. With that here are the photographs I've selected for this month.

First up - Galloping into the New Year, here is a photograph from IRL Canis Luppess:




A close-up of a cotton ball, from IRL Trimoon



Garden of the Gods, frrom IRL library taken by Brushoff

A wonderful stone stairway from IRL taken by impshlady




From IRL taken by hmg


A little fire that brings heat and light - something as we love, from IRL taken by naamer

A little warm seascape - we all need right about now! From IRL taken by wc valleysk



Great overlap of smoke and clouds, from IRL taken by young fang



The renaissance man, from IRL taken by gimlee


A little cabbage veggie to start the year off! From IRL taken by wthrlady
