Sketch of Cary - original oil pastel portrait drawing/painting

A difficult pose - the frontal view.  See - I'm already making excuses.  I did this one on 12 x 9" Sennelier Carte d'Art, which I've learned to love.  At first, I thought it was too "bumpy", but I've come to enjoy the rough surface and it's heavy enough that the oil doesn't come through.  No way.  It's great!Thanks so much for stopping by - and check out the oil pastel sketch I'm getting ready to post on Hackberry Street Studio.

Hi, Connie,
Very lovely work! In watercolour, I do&try exactly the same like your "About The Oil Pastel Review."
I have lots of oil pastels for birthday gifts from friends. Yet, I'm not familiar how to use them all. Keep up wonderful work and show us how to use them.
Kind regards, Sadami
