Working with Oil Pastels on Dark Paper

Underwater Swings
I gave up on glue as a linear devise for my work but continue to work on dark paper, here with oil pastels. Once again, delighted with the effects of blending and the painterly effects of applying one color over another. The drawback for me this time was the broad tip on the oil pastels. It is hard to create small faces, even though I was working on 12" x 18" paper. I ended up etching through the application of heavy color to make the scales on the fish and detail the face. Still experimenting....
