One of the words for last weeks’ Oil Pastel Weekly Challenge on WetCanvas was ‘red.’ What a great word because there are so many subjects that one could use to paint.
I guess I took the easy way out and went right to the apple. An apple was chosen because I wanted to explore a variety of color mixes for red, use multi-colored highlights, and give the object a shiny appearance. I wasn’t concerned with the surface, so this piece was painted on a gray pastel paper.
Here is my first apple painted in oil pastels (6×6). Hope you enjoy!
