|Using oil pastels as my primary medium, started a rough drawing the image of a woman into a white wood panel, choosing a green background.|
Oil pastels are a versatile but challenging medium you can add layers easily but the only way to blending that gives a smooth finish is your finger.
Within a few hours of work, the first stage of the portrait was completed
|Next morning I waked up early to work on the lights and the shadows|
|The artwork palette for her face is mostly pinks, pale yellows and white with light brown accents.|
Three shades of green are used in the background also in her eyes. for the hair black and dark gray.
Half inch nails that where hammered to the plywood using flat pliers. It took me two weeks to finish, because the small nails delayed the process.
After all I was not completely satisfied with the result. But I have other portraits to work on and take this technique to perfection.

Have fun and create!
