    The one medium that I truly struggle with Martha. This is very well done, oil pastels really do give off such a rich colour and you have used them so effectively.

  • Thanks, Jim. I last used oil pastels back at school but I attended a one day workshop and that got me trying something new. I used black paper and I think that also enhanced the brightness of the colours. I only had a small box of oil pastels so I used the cross hatching to “mix” the colours. I enjoyed it and might try it again.
