studio portrait thursday: tester

swirls, originally uploaded by ebbandflo_pomomama.

Trying out some new oilbars on canvas paper. Mmmmm - I like the result. Creamy buttery soft and mixable, these super-crayons take a few days to dry meaning that art can be tinkered with in passing. Unlike oil pastels, the result is eventually dry to the touch and permanent.

Here I've used the crayon bar, a brush, cotton buds and other sponges to smear, daub and blend. It's a very interactive process.

Only two colours were needed to make the blends above but already I want to add to my collection.
