Sumac 12 x 16 inches oil pastels on paper

Sumac Bushes 12H x 16W inches oil pastels on 140 lb W/C paper

This piece has a base of watercolor crayons, which I hadn’t heard of before and was excited to try. With expectations to complete a piece today, I wasn’t too impressed that the rough crayon color marks remain on the page, and the colors and solubility are weak. With more experience, those properties might be used to advantage, but not without an open frame of mind toward experimenting. Because of this, oil pastels are layered on top, then scratched away using fingernails and pottery tools.
