“Practice what you know, and it will help to make clear what now you do not know.” Rembrandt
Couldn’t have said it any better – he knew. Each time I paint with oil pastels they show me what I really don’t know – practicing and learning, the combination that keeps me moving forward in creativity.
Pink Roses Study, an oil pastel (4×6) was painted on cream tinted Mi-Teintes pastel paper. The study is small (photograph taken quite close so it’s a little distorted especially when you view the image in a larger size) because I wanted to try a new technique, but also to see whether the composition would hold up for a larger painting – I like how it developed. No white was used in this painting, the petal highlights were done with cream. I’m not sure whether to keep with the cream or go deeper with the values of the petals to eliminate some of the lightness w/the highlights – have to sleep on it.
