Oil Pastel Painting of a Two Love Birds at Sunset

Love Birds

As Halloween has ended, I wanted to move away from the doom and gloom feel that I pushed last month, so for a complete opposite, I decided to paint a love birds scene.

I wanted to capture two small birds sitting on a branch engulfed in their romance as the sunset behind them.

I used oil pastels for my sunset by blending the colours with kitchen paper. Unfortunately, I might have added a bit too much black as I had a hard time trying to get the blend of colours of a natural sunset that you would have expected. You will notice in my time-lapsed recording that I had to add extra yellows and oranges to try and keep a sense of the explosion of lighter colours when the sun finally set.

I hope you enjoy watching my time-lapsed recording of my Oil Pastel painting of a Two Love Birds at Sunset.
