My latest oil pastel was submitted for the Wetcanvas Oil Pastel Monthly Challenge. Using a reference image that was selected for members to use in this challenge, I couldn’t resist making the painting my own.
Blue Bowl and Pears an oil pastel (9×7) was painted on black tinted Mi-Teintes pastel paper. The original image was three yellow pears, a white table-cloth fully covering a table against a very light beige/white wall w/the lower half bead boarded. I saw an old masters still life when I looked at the photograph – so two of the yellow pears turned into red pears, with a black background and gray-black table and beige cloth. A little different, but it’s the vision I kept seeing when painting the scene.
Thanks for checking in ~
