oil pastels

Fish. Oil pastels on pastel paper. Ulla Hennig, April 2012

I am still exploring the world of oil pastels (called ops or oilies). When I say exploring I mean actually experimenting, painting, doing colour swatches, and I mean reading posts on Wet Canvas, or looking at other people’s art. It is amazing what can be done with oil pastels!

Wet Canvas has got a monthly Challenge in its oil pastels forum. And I did it – I decided to participate in the April challenge with this fish. The original  photo looks quite different, but I took my artistic licence with it, especially regarding the background and the colours of the fish.

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
