Old Fashioned Sketch - original oil pastel figurative sketch
This was an experiment in creating something - anything - from shapes that I'd scribbled in with my black oil pastel. The paper is guerilla painter carton - wonderful stuff! Then I tried to make a picture with the blobs on the paper. And what emerged was this imperfect old-timey looking sketch. Will just leave as is, without more finishing. I just know I took photos of the progress so I'd know how it started and then could share with you. Do y'all ever do this - just scribble in something without having the least idea where you're headed? Well, actually, I guess I do that every time I pick up an oil pastel or a brush, but this was an extreme case. Anyway, fun to try. Thanks for looking!
