It’s been a busy around here I apologize for not visiting everyone’s blogs, but throughout this afternoon I will do my best.
Hillside Fiddling, an oil pastel (9×12) was painted on heavy card stock paper. What started as a quiet field with an incredible cloud structure, soon turned into something quite different. The textured paper had a bit of a slick coating on it, which didn’t allow the oil pastels to adhere properly and led to much bleeding. Thank goodness there are only 8 sheets left in my supply – this paper is not a good surface for oil pastels.
Well plans changed as the cloud structure didn’t pan out, so I decided to take an opportunity to paint this fiddler and her violin. I don’t paint figures that often, let alone a violin – ha, a good exercise but that’s about it. Click onto the image for a larger view.
