Here's my entry for this week's challenge at Inspiration Avenue- the theme was "tea" and I thought it was a perfect oppurtunity to experiment with the oil pastels I just got for my art class supplies. I had been letting my students use my Caran D'ache pastels which worked great for a small group to use in my dining room- but this party that I'm teaching tomorrow has 10 young ladies coming, and there was no way I could stretch my own stock that far!
Anyway; I bought some sets of Sennelier oil pastels (at about half the price of my others) and wanted to see if they were as good as advertised, and they ARE! I love the way they layer- you can build color on top of color using either your finger or the actual pastels to blend them-I LOVE these pastels!
So here's my entry for this week's challenge:
And there you go! Be sure to stop by IA to see what everyone else came up with- as always, there is sure to be a beautifully diverse collection of art!
