No Peeking.

Sometimes I like to just pick up my Portfolio oil pastels and create one of my 'quick' girls.

I did this one today.

No Peeking

She was done on the back of a piece of card that was lying on my desk.

I have mentioned before but I will again. I just love working in these pastels. Before these I just had some really cheap ones that were very hard to work with as they were difficult to blend. Working in these pastels have convinced me that it would be worth while taking a step up to the more expensive artist grade pastels.



  1. She is lovely again! I agree with you.. I don't have the Portfolio get them not here - but I bought some Sennelier recently..gosh they are like butter and soooo high pigmented!

  2. definitely worth buying the best materials you can afford

  3. I might have to try these if I can make girls as cute as yours! ♥♥♥

  4. She's charming!
    And I have some "lesser" oil pastels that I play with once in a while and have often thought upgrading might be worthy. I say go for it!

  5. She is so sweet...such a wonderful round face!

  6. I use conte crayon pastels as I find them less messy than oil pastels, you use oil pastels beautifully, it is always worth paying for the best materials, it does make a difference.

  7. she is great as usual, I cant work in pastels, I just don't like the way they look, but your work with them, looks seemless, I might have to give them another try

  8. She's adorable and beautifully drawn - you really are the Queen of Pastels!
