“Pears” is an oil pastels piece done in 2011. The surface is pastelbord, and the size of the piece is 8×10.
I really love pastelbord the more I use it. There really is no comparison with pastel paper of any sort. Not only is pastelbord a solid, thick surface, but the actual surface itself is gritty and has plenty of tooth to pick up the oil pastels with.
I am pleased with how this piece turned out – the colors are bright and vibrant and I feel that the wood texture underneath worked out well too.
This piece is now available for purchasing prints at Redbubble:
