Not an oil pastel portrait yet

I'm still trying to develop my oil pastel rendering skill... it is really hard. I can't even achieve the color I want yet... I don't know what to say anymore... I'm just not satisfied with it...



"Another oil pastel rendering practice"


Yesterday evening, I bought some cotton buds. I hope it can helps improving my Buncho oil pastel rendering.



I wish I could draw better...

An Apple A Day

I'm trying to use Buncho Oil Pastel color which is typically hard oil pastel, but it is cheaper. The way of coloring and blending is also different from the softer oil pastel like the one that art students use. in order to get used with this oil pastels, I did some oil pastel coloring practice... and here's another practice stuff...



"An apple a day keeps the doctor away
Apple in the morning - Doctor's warning
Roast apple at night - starves the doctor outright
Eat an apple going to bed - knock the doctor on the head
Three each day, seven days a week - ruddy apple, ruddy cheek"



Rendering Oil Pastel Practice

Inspired by my friend, surface... I've started back to play with oil pastel. Quite hard to blend my 24 Colors Buncho Oil Pastels to meet what's in my mind. I just can't synchronize my fingers, my eyes and my brain yet...

"The Next Crayon Practice"


I'm going to test this new oil pastel blending skill on a portrait drawing... Soon...
