• Feather Earrings - original oil pastel portrait

    3 monthes ago - By Hackberry Street Studio

    ONE OF MY DRAWINGS WAS ACCEPTED FOR EXHIBITION IN THE CATHARINE LORILLARD WOLFE ONLINE SHOW IN OCTOBER
    I was trying to work with neutrals here to give the red feather earrings more 'pop'. This piece is painted on 7 x 5" Pastelbord. The great thing about Pastelbord - when working with oil pastels - is that with time, the oil pastels on this support tend to feel dry to touch. Still, I like to spray with oil pastel fixative several days after the piece is completed. Thanks for stopping by!
