Oil pastel on paper 9 x 12 1996

Size on paper 1/2" x 3/4"
Here I was using oil pastel to cover areas quickly without the extended labor of colored pencil. The picture above is not compelling except for the lady. 

Oil pastel is a soft crayon that dries slowly over several years. Adding multiple coats of oil pastel is generally not possible, but it can be done with interesting effects by first applying a thin coat of assorted light colors to the surface <> afterwards apply a generous coat of dark color over the top <> then scrape away the dark color to reveal bright colors below.
