This oil pastel is painted on 12 x 9" Guerilla carton board. Wonderful stuff. I just ordered some Caran d'Ache oil pastels because I think they will work really well on this surface. I was going to do something with the background, but didn't have time, and didn't really get much of a finish on the model, either, but maybe next time. Thanks for looking!
I went to the Matisse exhibit at the San Antonio Museum of Art on Friday, then on Saturday, I attended a photogravure printmaking workshop sponsored by the McNay Art Museum. I've been a busy girl. See my August 23rd post.
I am Visual Language Magazine's "Artist of the Day" for August 16th! Thank You VL!
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
