Tiny Tango - original oil pastel figurative painting ACEO

I love working on Art Spectrum Colourfix pastel paper and the ATC/ACEO size is so cute with the white untextured paper around the edges.  It gives such a neat appearance, I think.  Of course, the colored working area is wonderfully gritty - not too much, just enough for me - and a delight to work on.  Using unsharpened oil pastels - in this case, Caran d'Ache, since they aren't as gooey as Senneliers - lends a looser appearance.  I mean, it's impossible to show much detail with rounded oil pastel sticks in such a small area.  This painting is 3 1/2 x 2 1/2".  Thanks so much for stopping by!
