29 Faces: Day 21

I've had a set of oil pastels in the back of my closet for over a decade, so I decided that this piece seemed simple enough for me to play with them.

I was thinking they'd behave sort of like chalk, but after starting to add the flesh tone over the blue/green, I was disappointed to find it was more clumpy/waxy (like crayons).

I freaked out a little when I started adding I tried blending it some with q-tips (fixed it some).

I still don't have a hang on the blending. It seemed like it just ended up scraping off the layer underneath. I'm not sure if it's because the pastels were so old, or if they usually behave like that. I'm still not sure if I like this medium, it didn't quite turn out as I imagined (and I lost a lot of the depth of the sublayer colors).

A very hectic week. Even more to catch up on now, but I was able to get a face drawn today.

I was very impressed and grateful for our Decor team this year! All I had to do was give them the designs on paper and they took off from there. Great work guys!
