|Fifth Time's a Charm, 5x7, oil on board|
I recently purchased some Mi Teintes Touch pastel paper. I really had a tough time using it. I generally don't like sanded pastel papers, and thought that the texture of this paper would be the perfect surface. I tried 4 different styles and techniques, but still was unhappy and didn't want to submit any to Terry's challenge.
So, out came the oils. I had painted a piece earlier in the day, and still had some paint on the palette and wanted to use it up. I quickly laid down some basic shapes in a loose manner, then brought out the palette knife instead of a brush.
