Pastel Roses

Not quite how I’d have liked it to turn out,but not too bad for a first image done completely in pastels? My difficulty with them is just that they are so…blunt!How does anyone manage sharp images with oil pastels,I do not know. What do you think?

  1. Hey there! That’s a very nice painting of roses. I like the monotone rose to the left. You did a good job on the light and dark parts. If you like a neater look there are oil colours since you can vary brush sizes to create thin or thick lines. Or why not mix it with different mediums? I know that watercolours and oil pastels make awesome combination. If I remember correctly, oil pastels have rather thick ends and smudge easily so the style would be “heavier” and “blunt”. If you google oil pastels paintings you will notice a certain style. = ) Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks bee,i will indeed google it and see what pops up. I normally paint with oils & brushes,or watercolours, but was just giving oil pastels a go this time.Can’t say I’m too impressed with my abilities using them 😀
