A Bird For Symbolism by NynjaKat A Bird For Symbolism by NynjaKat
So we've started testing out& getting used to oil pastels in painting because they have a similar look to paints...I think I've got them down pretty well.

Cardinal reference from the misc references provided in class. The background is abstract&symbolic for leaves, clouds, flowers, water drops & the sky.

Took a few class periods and a bit of time at home today with my own oil pastels. Pastel works definitely look better in person...

This is absolutely gorgeous and you're amazing. :) I love oil pastels, I'm still a bit new to them myself but once you get the hang of it they're a very tangible medium and it adds an extra layer to the feeling in your work I think. This really is amazing. I can tell you enjoyed working with the greens and white/blues muchly. Looking forward to more of this sort in the future maybe. :)

Since this looks awesome on my computer screen, that says a lot. I made a really cool oil pastel bird in elementary school. I think I'll see if I can submit it!! :excited:
