Oil Pastel

Self Defense

A quasi-self portrait i did for a class last semester. I screwed up the veins and arteries a bit, but that’s what you get when you cram a plate the night before the deadline.

oil pastel and poster paint on vellum.


Canson was 60% off so I bought a sketchpad for pastels even though I haven’t used them in forever.

This is me proving to myself that, yes, I am terribly out of practice so I call this a study in colour.
