    this is fantastic, excellent work Kathie, love it:)

  • Thanks so much Robin, it was hard to photograph this one, I think it looks better ‘in the flesh’ so to speak, but this is close enough. I am thrilled with the result, wasn’t sure if I could do it, now I can confirm I am addicted to oil pastels. Next on the list……chalk pastels….LOL!

    I love this kathie! Such a stunning effect with those oil pastels. It worked really well on that black paper. I’m tempted to get some now myself. I loved them when I was younger :)

  • Thanks Dianne, I can’t wait to do another. I remember at school colouring in white paper with multi colours and then black over the top, then scratching a drawing over the top…..forgotton all about that until this workshop…LOL!

    Wonderful painting Kathie – I love the textures & colours!

  • Thanks Terri, so much, you’re one of the artists here that have inspired me to work with pastels, so thankyou. Is it a painting or a drawing using pastels, kinda of in between isn’t it? lol!
