Oil Pastels

Purple on Purple 11x14"

Orange Green Landscape 12x26"

Golden Landscape 5x4"

Oil pastels are bacically expensive crayolas; the pigment is bound in a wax binder. The paintings shown here were done over clay mono types that were printed on a non-woven fabric support. The pressure from the crayon results in some of the superficial fibers being pulled out, creating a unique and pleasing texture. The completed painting is then fixed and covered with a high gloss finish.
