I would love to share thoughts on techniques, products, books, concepts … relating to art every Friday, and hope you will join in with your experiences and photos.  It is Thursday evening and so I am jumping the gun a little.  But, I wanted to mention the Sennelier Oil Pastels, both the shorter ones and the big one in white that I used for the first time the other day over a painting that I had begun in walnut oils.  Firstly, I did not really notice a smell which was a bonus.  And, secondly, I loved doodling with them on the tip and also swiping across from the side.  Sometimes, I dissolved them with oil paint or walnut oil on a cloth.  A friend mentioned that the R&W ones are “amazingly soft and luscious to work with.”  Here are a few photos of the stages of “Renewal.”
