Things I Thought I would do During this 30 Paintings in 30 Days

"Nicola's Bluebells"              Oil Pastel, 6x8"
$75 plus shipping
  
I enjoyed painting this oil pastel so much...the slipperiness of the medium was really fun after all that (sticky) acrylic painting I've been doing lately.

A few things I thought I would do:  I thought I would do more Oil Pastels, I thought I would paint on black gesso, and I thought I would try my oil paints again.

I have some boards with black gesso ready to go, so we will see what this week brings.

The oil paints may have to wait till February! 

Happy Painting, everyone! 

And thank you, Nicola B for the use of the photo that inspired this painting...

Isn't it great to do different supports and media. Each picture seems to call for,what it needs. I like the blue for grasses in the foreground . Nice. Glad you got some down time and more importantly, paint time

I LOVE this painting! I have a set of oil pastels that I've been hesitant
to try--this is very inspiring! :)

Bright and inviting. Beautiful blues!
Inviting composition.
Have you ever used medium on your OP's?

Thank you all for your comments, which I am behind in responding to. Came home from work with a headache last night and so went straight to sleep. I'll have to come back and check these out later...

But I will say, Sharon, thank you, yes, I'm totally enjoying this Challenge and glad you are following along!
