Hello everyone,

I am coming back to my oil pastels, first trying to note some ideas I may come back to later. Here's a little note from Pulaski Parade, NY 2016:
I'm glad to put it on paper - you can see many things that could and should be changed, improved, considered in the final pastel painting :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :coffee:
And I'm glad I can save and share it on Paint Basket :yippee: O0 :thankyou:
All the best to my fellow artists and students, I'm back to my next PP :painting:
 :thankyou:
Pav

Pav,

It's always good to see your work.  It's a bright, lively parade.  You have caught the mood in your painting.

Keep 'em coming.

I love this Pav, such a bright and happy painting. You have captured the mood perfectly - I particularly love the horse on the right  :)

Cheers

I am trying to get in shape with oil pastels and pick up on some challenges... Here's my another warm-up:
My dear friend loves to arrange for flowers in the chapel and in two days there will be her birthday! Well, I am going to surprise her with this little painting... Oil pastels on paper, of course :whistle: And, last but not least, apart from the flowers, God be praised on the altar! I definitely need a blessing before I will step further into challenging projects... I have two in mind and am going to start tomorrow... Heaven knows, how much time it will take and if I will succeed... :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :idiot2: :idiot2: :idiot2: :uglystupid2: :tickedoff: :whistle:
But :promise: to keep you posted on my progress...

All the best to my fellow artists,
Special thanks to the Master Tutor :not_worthy: :not_worthy: :not_worthy:

Pav, that is quite the 'warm up'!!!  :faint:   Glad you started with a simple subject!  ;)    ;D

This is a splendid piece and I'm sure it will be received with much excitement. Wonderful colourings and detailing.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Hello again,

I have finally completed my first project - a conceptual sketching of The Warning:
My dear friend asked me to work on that topic and gave me free hand in that regard, so I have sketched that with my oil pastels. That is a free hand drawing, based on the mystical predictions... And a lot of technical challenges of course... :faint: Looks like I am drifting into symbolic realism...  :faint: I wonder what she will say...  :eek: I'm glad I can share it with you too. :heeha:
That was my fist scheduled work. I will be working now on another challenge, and I will have to go beyond sketching... And paint on a wood board :sweat: :sweat: :sweat: :idiot2:

All the best to my fellow artists!
Pav
