I am offering a contest for a FREE oil pastel drawing. I bought a set of oil pastels a long time ago and would like to get in a little practice before I begin offering them as commissions. Please, head shots only at this time.
I will take a look at all the photo submissions tomorrow morning and pick a photo that "speaks" to me. Then I will post the finished drawing and PM the winner for their mailing address so I can ship it out.
For those who have used oil pastels, what type of paper is best, rough or smooth? Is there a good fixative to seal oil pastel drawings with or does a fixative just ruin them like with soft pastels?
I need to give commissions a little break and would like to work with new mediums such as the watercolor set I have never opened. Stay tuned for future contests.
Let the posting begin!
