This month on the oil pastel forum of Wetcanvas (an online artist community) I am the sponsor of the February monthly challenge. One of my roles was to select seven to ten photographed images from a variety of subjects for artists to paint using oil pastels as the primary medium.
I am painting a number of the subjects myself, I’m working on a landscape tha’s interesting and exciting – hope to post in the next day or two.
In the meantime I wanted to share with you the first challenge I painted, a still life of eggs. To change it up I decided to paint the eggs white without using white. This was a first for me in both painting eggs and simulating white. The experiment was interesting enough that I plan to paint the eggs again using primarily yellows, ochre and silver-grays.
Is there any bacon in the house?
