Lily/Lotus - in oil pastel by Alexandra Felgate
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



I was inspired by a fellow RBer to do an exercise whereby you draw or paint the same image in 5 or 6 different media. My original Waterlily/Lotus drawing in coloured pencil is one I was very pleased with, i loved the image and colours, and so I have now done a series of 6 paintings/drawings of this image. It was really great to challenge and extend myself by using different media especially those I was not familiar with using.
This one is in Oil Pastel on Cartridge Paper.
I would love your feedback on all six of these paintings, which do you like best? Why?

Mother Nature is my muse, and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to capture her beauty on paper or canvas.

I like to experiment with media and subject matter, and am always creating, wherever I am.

    This one is more playful than the first 2 but has a lot of energy.

  • This was actually the last one I did in the series, and again it was great fun, I hardly ever use oil pastels (reminiscence of childhood!) and I think it brought out that fun childlike playful nature!

    ooh this one is gorgeous with the blues – as you can see I am working backwards on your images…background is a great contrast

  • This one was so much fun to do (if a little messy!!)

    This is really beautiful. I love water lillies and your oil pastel colours are so gorgeous.

  • Thank you so much Anne!!! I haven’t dug out my oil pastels for a while, it might be time to play with them again!!!!!
