Holbein and Sennelier Oil Pastel.

I'm finally back to my "Koi Poind". Again. 

No more show paintings, dead lines, special ideas, just my old work, what I need to finish. I'm glad I can do it. Looking at my Koi fish I feel that right now many things I would done differently, but I need to deal with what I have, so I'll try to get my best out of it. 

Here is a next update on this painting after long brake.

Clematis. Oil pastel WIP.

I finished my first layer of OP. I always starting in with OP sticks and silicon shapers, so far I don't have all grown covered. Sometimes I go right away with second layer - same method - sticks and shapers. 

After I'm done with that, I'm switching to solvent and brushes and here it becomes more oil painting, then anything else.. This is a more delicate stage and takes longer time, because often I have to wait till solvent will almost dry, before I can continue.

This is exactly a part what I'm up to with this work right now- brush and solvent. Not finished yet, but getting there.

Clematis Oil Pastel. WIP.

"Blue Clematis" WIP.

Museum Series Ampersand Pastel Board. 4 x 6 "

Gouache underpainting.

I'm working on a twin-painting to little Oil Pastel "Pansies" I just finished last week. Second painting will be a Blue Clematis. Same size, same frame. I think they will look very nice together side-by-side with my first one. 

Often I do underpainting for OPs in oil pencils. This is what I did for pansies. Clematis, however, will have a gouache underpainting (Caran-D-Ache and Art Spectrum). Picture what you see here is underpainting ONLY, before I started with actual Oil Pastel.

I think when it will be finished, it will be very beautiful.

Pansies, small scale. Oil pastel.

Pansies. 4 X 6". 

Ampersand Museum Series Pastel Board

Holbein and Sennelier Oil Pastel.

This small painting I painted for two reasons. First I was asked not long time ago, can I do something small in Oil Pastel with preserving all details. Secondly, I'm currently preparing some works for local Small Paintings group show, so I want to have few new paintings done, what will sort of stand out... Miniature in oil pastel is pretty unusual combination, so i went for it. I wouldn't call this painting real "miniature " for the reason: most of the time it is not only size of painting, but scale of painting 1:6. This one is questionable, if we will come to the scale part. However it is definitely small art work, one of the smallest OPs I ever done and I like it. Let see what others have to say.

Oh, yes, forgot to mention the fact: it is a smaller version of bigger painting I did earlier from the same reference. Different format too.

November Plein Air.

 9 X 12 ". Soft Pastel, La Carte.

Today we went somewhere in the middle of nowhere Carlisle area... Pretty creek, look like full of rainbow trout. Right enough to keep me slightly mad about not taking my fishing stuff along... Everybody was painting something different; me, on other hand - something very usual. One more little waterfall!

I just finished one more tempera painting. Like usually I have a feeling that need to work about another week to have it done, but.. probably I don't have to. This time I have few WIP pictures, that could make it somewhat more interesting. 

Here we go!

Bates Farm, Plein Air.

Early November. 

11 x 14"  Plein Air. Soft Pastel, pencils, La Carte.

This Wednesday we went to another local farm for Plain Air session. What a day! At first we got lost in a swamp for a while and had some very productive painting session (of course I had to find out that forgot to check memory card in my camera, so all pictures were taking with my phone.. oops!.. ) Then we went to see two local galleries (One more nice surprise, thank You , Pat for taking us there!) And finished at some sort of eating place, not so much eating but talking about more of paintings... After all I managed to finish my painting I started on the farm. Here it is, but better next time I check not just batteries, but WHOLE my equipment. We lost a lot of good shots there...
