“Wet Lips” – Oil Pastel Realism

Oil Pastels Lips Drawing
Oil Pastels Painting – “Wet Lips” 8×10

This oil pastels painting was done as an attempt at realism using oil pastels.  I was inspired by looking through the magnificent artwork of Alyssa Monks, and I decided I wanted to push my artwork further than I have previously attempted.

The piece was done on a white 8×10 Pastelbord (made by Ampersand), with a mix of Sennelier oil pastels and Mungyo student quality oil pastels.  The Mungyos I used mostly for a base layering, although as I worked on it, I went back to the Mungyos here and there, because the skin tone colors of the Mungyo oil pastels were just right for this piece.
