Not The Worst Day, As Such (oil pastel, ink and wash)

Not the best either. Had to dig deep for inspiration on this one. This is a drawing that I re-visited, after creating the initial outline in pencil, I inked it and then overlaid the colours and tone with oil pastel before adding a final layer of ink wash and more outlining. The model was a little apathetic or maybe laconic.

    Whoa! I couldn’t believe my eyes, Antsketch, when the color popped open on your post! Oil pastel is not easy….at least I don’t think so. What an interesting take on a laconic model. The color makes him come to life more than had you left him in ink, don’t you think so?

      Oil pastel’s not that easy but it’s kind of fun. I like the messiness of it. Sometimes it’s nice to just get paint all over your fingers, under your nails and to smear it around the page a bit.
