One Oil Pastel Technique
I tried at a different oil pastel technique today.
|I drew directly onto the illustration board and added the values.|
|Areas of dark were made darker . I looked to check the balance of the light, medium and darks.|
|I used turps to blend the darks and mediums. When dry, I sprayed fixative as I did not want the graphite to blend into the oil pastel.|
|I lightly coloured n the principal colours for the painting with my waxier pastels.|
|I used my burner to deepen and darken the lines in the painting. And, finally, I used the Sennelier oil pastels to add accent colours or enriched the colours throughout the painting.|
|When I put on the matt the composition was more to what I had started out to do. In the other pictures I went well beyond the matt lines too ensure all was covered.|
