Minen leads 2H and 6B with an oil pitt.
I enjoyed creating this one, there's something
about drawing cats, its always different... 
maybe it's their personality...

Thanks for looking :)

my old favorite the medium grade oil pitt pencil.

Pastel painting of a winter shore

pastel painting  pencil art waves in winter

Chalk pastel on tinted canson. I used to work with chalk 
pastels and nothing else years ago, I found them to be so versatile and 
fast to use. These last few works have been a trip down memory lane as 
I mostly use oils now for color. Some of the pastels I still keep must be almost three 
decades old at this stage..

Thanks for looking :)

Pastel painting of bananas......

This is chalk pastel on tinted Canson..
There was a time I would use nothing but chalk pastels as my medium.
This went on for a couple of years, I was delighted with the speed that work 
could be produced at when using them and the amazing strong colors that 
could be achieved. For me chalk pastels will always be that next step beyond 
drawing where color is required. Very useful too for a preparatory sketch when
considering a subject for an oil painting. 

Thanks for looking :)
