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"

I have not used Oil Pastels much, but they do seem to need a bit of blending to get the right effect. If I remember correctly I used a bit of white spirit with a cotton bud, to do it....methinks your apple is very well done, nice colour and tone.

Not an oil pastel portrait yet

"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...

Cross Hatching Practice: Maher Zain

I'm not feeling very well today. I got MC, staying at home and tuning to Malaysian radio station which couldn't stop playing Maher Zain songs. Perhaps, I may have also been infected by Maher Zain fever around Malaysia. Therefore, I took my pen and draw this for all Maher Zain fans...

This drawing is done using ballpoint pen and my sketchbook paper. Hope you enjoy it!
