INSPIRATION FOR THESE SPANISH BOTANICS
These oil pastel drawings are based on my Spanish Botanics in ink. During COVID I was introduced to so many talented artist through the brilliant Artist Support Pledge that I wanted to try out some new things. One of the things I wanted to experiment with was oil pastels. So I went to Van Beek Art Supplies in Eindhoven and got myself a serious oil pastels supply 🙂
These ones I made on a base layer of oil paints. I experimented with detailed and loose sections and with colour blocking and mixing colours.
I really loved working with this new medium. Although I have to say: if I want to continue to work with it I am going to buy artist quality – for instance Sennelier or R&F pigment sticks. And I’d love to work with it on a larger canvas. To really enjoy the perks of this medium: making grand gestures without your brush running out of paint!
SPECS OF THESE SPANISH BOTANICS
