This time I used a pale yellow sienna instead of white.
I really like working with this medium. Probably will try something a little larger. This piece is 9″ x 12.
I watched a video creating a painting that started out with Ink washes light to dark carving out the main value shapes. Next, Black and White oil sticks to refine the process. I Decided to give it a try and I think the most fun was using my fingers to blend the the stick marks. I liked finger painting when I was a child and this was a lot of fun too, but much messier.
After the white oil stick finally dried, I put the piece on a wood panel and painted the sides black.
I continued this painting with my left hand. Even tho I’ve regained most of the mobility in my right hand, the challenge was too great to change hands in mid-stream. For some reason it was even enjoyable. Will probably try another.
