Hemmed In

This painting has been sold

Oil pastel on paper 9" x 7"

The colour and texture of the support has a lot of influence I think on how oil pastel painting works out. This was done on a grey, neutral coloured pastel paper and in contrast to working on black, I felt less obliged to "cover" the surface and enjoyed drawing with the pastels as well as creating body colour with them.

I'm liking these pastels very much.
