From the Vault: Oil Stick Portraits




I was cleaning my studio area the other day and I stumbled across some drawings that I had completely forgotten about. I did them a few years ago when I first discovered and fell in love with oil sticks (the big ones). They lie somewhere between oil pastels and oil paint and they’re a lot of fun to use. Anyway, I was just playing around with them when I drew these quick made up portraits of somewhat creepy-looking girls with pale skin, black hair and bright red lips. I only had black, white, and cream oil sticks because they’re kind of pricey. I used regular oil pastels to add some color.
