Something new

I wandered through an art supply store today and came across some oil pastels on sale. I've used chalk pastels before but not oil ones, so I bought a dozen of them and took them home to experiment. I really know little about oil pastels but have found that they have a lovely, buttery feel to them and like oil paints build up slowly, blending beautifully and you can acheive that same textured effect of layers as well.

I think I like them.

Here's part of my experiment with them.
