Here we are. Such fabulous haze. It’s a straight shot into the sun. Luckily it’s early and coolish-I can take it. Whoa, Plein air’ll be the death of me.
Today I am trying out oil pastels. I’ve been oil painting lately and Tumamoc is usually a drawing venue so I’m thinking to draw with oil.
Plus, these very,very nice Sennelier sticks are a gift from my sis and her son. This one’s for you little guy!
In these slightly extreme conditions I am extra careful with my measured line drawing. Once it heats up I have a feeling these oil pastels are going to be pretty slippery. Slippy, Slippy, sticky. I made a terp.wash with the first layer. It’s eating up the media-not sure if this was the right thing to do. In Winter better maybe.Auntie M, Auntie M ! I’m melting! And, were done, whew. Absolutely au plein air. A collaboration with the Sun. I like! Quick, send more sticks!
