Material experiments

Updated: Nov 14, 2019


Based on imagery from my sketchbook in continued to experiment with media such as pencils pen and in particular oil pastels. I Have experimented with oil pastels on a variety of ways such as; using them on cardboard, wood, fabric and blending them with turpentine. I am appreciating the effect of oil pastels as they are very bold and immediate. With other media I tend to over think every stroke and line whereas with oil pastels I feel a lot less restricted. I especially like the effect of oil pastels on the upholstery fabric as depending on how much pressure is applied you can get a completely different texture. I intend to experiment with all these methods more but especially on fabric however I may experiment with different types to see how the result varies.
