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.
