Sketch with Pastel, Ink and Such

A sketch created using oil pastel washes, ink, and nupastel

Here is a little sketch I did (about 3″ x 5″) using a new technique.  I did the drawing in ink with a Pentel® brushpen then I colored it using washes of dissolved oil pastel. I had previously melted various colors of the oil pastels into a little palette. After letting them harden into cakes, I used mineral spirits to rewet them. It’s like oil based water color. I then went over it with NuPastel. I like it, hope you do too.
