Oil Bars

Apologies for such a long time in posting any arty updates – been lots of family things to sort out lately, I’m quite exhausted by all of that, so let’s get on with it hey?

I discovered Winsor & Newton Oil Bars quite by accident and only have a small selection at this stage.  But boy am I enjoying this new found freedom.  I am still doing fiddly small things while I get used to manipulating the oil bars on different surfaces.  These are some of the more recent things I did over the weekend.

New soft pastel work

“Woodland Light”

14 ¼” x 10 ¼”  Soft pastels on paper

 

Footnote:    I got hold of this with the Galeria gloss medium – the idea was to see if this medium would be compatible and protect the pastels better than a fixative spray.   What seems to have happened is the tones have darkened – the painting is still interesting, I think and perhaps more atmospheric.  I have matted and mounted it behind cellophane – photo just to show difference in tonality.

“Driftwood”

51cm x 41cm x 2cm

20″ x 16″ x 3/4″  (approx)

This is a heavily textured piece and a lot of reworking went into its creation.  There are many layers of material that I have sculpted.  The layers were made from caulk, modelling paste, fabric, threads (metallic and cotton), sand and paint.   I used acrylics, as well as metal effect paints and the base is a stretched canvas.

This image taken in reflected natural daylight with tripod.

Anyway, hope you like.
