Kelly - Painting 15

(oil pastel)

I did this chickadee painting after taking a winter walk for the Great Backyard Bird Count. I wanted to create something fast and "in the moment," so I decided to use oil pastel. I didn't start with a pencil drawing--I just jumped in with the crayons. When I do that, detail never has a chance to creep in, and there's always lots of energy.

Fuzzy and fun. This is a great texture for fluffiness of that chickadee. Looks like this medium and energy of approach would be fun for grasses as well?

Boy it looks like you are having fun experimenting with different mediums. You sure do keep busy!

I love the energy, the pressure from the pastels pushing color to the sides of the marks makes it look like a monoprtint.
