Combining Sennelier and CrayPas Specialists



Just did this little sketch to show the CrayPas Specialist oil pastels in the background.  They work really well, especially with the square edges which lend themselves to drawing.  Plus they're not creamy, so the background greys are lovely to work with.  And they can also be used under the creamier brands.  I really enjoyed the Specialists and will keep using them.  PS - if you're wondering what the model was doing, she was smoothing lotion on her hands.  And, looking back at how I began this drawing, I've really changed her.  That's what happens when - in this case - I changed the channel, or when the drawing group is over.   Thanks for stopping by!

Such a lovely portrait! Hope you are surviving our Texas dog days heat! Haha I bet you not using those oil pastels outside, heehee, for long, right? I saw an egg cook on the sidewalk in Dallas one summer back in the 80's. Bet it could be done right about now. Stay cool! xoxo

Hi Aimeslee - thanks for your nice comment! I think you're right about the egg - will be so glad when this is behind us! Hoping for rain this weekend - fingers and toes crossed!
