STILL LIFE TECHNIQUES – OIL PASTELS

I love bright colors

Bright satiated colors are my passion, however, as well as blurred oil paintings of Claude Monet. Of course, when observing the painting or photo – intensity of colors play an important role, but more so, one could see the attempts of the author to pass his/her imaginative realm on a canvas or not. The colors are not enough though!

Anyway, I realized I love oil pastel for its satiated joyful footprint on a paper, it just make me happy immediately!

My drawing in oil pastel

I use Caranp’ache Geneve oil pastels. Yes, they are not cheap, somehow I discovered that my experience in this life is worth to have materials of good quality, somehow after years and years of fears that I’m not worthy to handle a tool… I saved for e few months, I saved on cafeterias!, and bought a great tool – I gain now the key to creativity.
