PostSubject: Inspired by STS   Tue Jul 12, 2011 11:02 pm

The creativity and talent of wonderful STS people have inspired me to start drawing again. I haven't done any drawing in probably 20 years. I tried to get it going again last year, but my inspiration fizzled out after one or two attempts. But this wonderful board has reignited my passion and given me the oomph to try something new. So I decided to teach myself oil pastels! Shocked
Charcoal pencil from a year ago:

My very 1st pastels, from about 2 weeks ago:

hmmmm, do I see a pattern?
oh wait! ...where did this fellow come from?

It must have been fate, since two days after I did him, Ana introduced her new Gaur! (I can't wait! bounce bounce bounce ) This was when I started working with blending (smearing, actually) to create modelling.

uh oh, I seem to be heading back to my routine:

This was fun because I started playing with using color pencil as well. This was also when I learned that charcoal pencil and oil pastels don't work together too well.

I think I'll have to get pastel pencils for fine work - hooves and horns etc - and I think I must take a course in perspective. study

[ cheers I figured out how to fix the size! now they're a little big, but at least you can see them!]

From what I can see Laughing they look WONDERFUL!!! I love the Gaur and the last picture, is it a Barbary Sheep? The others are lovely too, especially the first one, I like that! The contrast is great cheers
