I'm later than usual posting today's face but I got there in the end.
Those of you that saw my last post will know that I am experimenting with oil pastels. I asked if anyone had any tips on working with oil pastels and Morag over at Paper Rainbow pointed me in the direction of a tutorial by the very talented artist Lynne Hoppe. I was already aware of her work but some how missed the tutorial so I popped over to take a look and decided to give her technique a try.
The materials I used were oil pastels, gouache and watercolour paint, coloued pencils and charcoal pencil. Something that I wasn't aware of until now was that you could use oil pastels and watercolour paint together. This technique results in a much lighter looking piece compared to my last face which was done in oil pastels alone.
I need lots more practice but I am looking forward to trying it out again.
See you tomorrow. x
