Oil pastel painting: Field of flowers

I love the vibrancy of oil pasel and the tactile experience of playing with them (most of my art is play/ exploration/ therapy/ relaxation).  For some of this painting I heated the crayon with my embossing heat gun to put on a mark with luscious, thick colour. Other areas I blended with my fingers and still others with gum turps. Finally a little scratching into the work. The support is a commercially prepared canvas board. A fun session with mycreative friend Catherine. I will repeat the activity with my Wednesday night class this evening.

    Wow, what colours!

    • Liam, I just watched one of your videos. Loved it. Will watch more…. only problem is that with the lively brush work I feel the urge to go to my studio and have my brushes “dancing”.
