My latest oil pastels art … a ladybug drawing for Drawing 2 class. The assignment was to draw a bug, really up close, using oil pastels. I wish I could post some of the pieces that others did for class too. Several of them were amazing! This one turned out pretty good, I think. I am pleased with how the reflection and shininess worked out, and the water drops seem fairly realistic.
This time I used mostly Sennelier oil pastels. A few Cray-Pas Expressionist were used for coloring in major areas, also some black from that set. But I think from now on I’ll be using Senneliers for the majority of my artwork in oil pastels. They’re richer, blend better, and I also am noticing they actually stick to the paper better.
I didn’t do anything for a background. The green is 100% from the toned paper (Canson Meintes).
I have listed this piece for sale at ArtWanted.
