I am so excited I just have to share this. Yesterday, whilst returning DVDs to Blockbuster I made a slight detour to the local art shop. Well you know, they often have supplies I almost need. Sure enough I found this box of Sennelier Iridescent oil pastels going cheap so I had to buy it obviously, even though I have absolutely no experience with pastels. But hey they were developed for Picasso so that's good enough for me.
Anyway, I have to tell you I am in love with them! They go on like butter and blend like a dream, and the colours are just yummy. Here's something I did with them today.
Unfortunately my scanner doesn't pick up the iridescence so you'll have to trust me on the gleam they provide to this piece. I heartily recommend you try some!
