I’ve begun playing around with oil pastels, something I’ve not had a go at many times before. I’m not a huge fan of oil paints and I enjoy the finality of creating marks with the pastels.
I created this (rough first draft) four series as an attempt to combine the softness of the pastels and the harsh reality of the subject. The subject is hard to work out and create an (amusing) shock when they’re figured out. I found creating this little series very enjoyable, I will definitely be redrafting them!
