Oil Pastel Painting Mum and Baby Ghost Portrait

Mum and Baby Ghost Portrait

Today I would like to share with you my painting of a Mum and Baby Ghost Portrait that I did for Halloween.

I would be happier with this cute portrait but I was shot down by my wife and children saying that it looks more like the Japanese Teru Teru Bozu (Balls) that young children hang in the rainy season to ask for good weather.

In its creation, I used a lot of blacks and when it came to blending I found it very difficult to blend the black into the white. The eyes for the baby ghost didn’t stay rounded as much as I liked and I had to put a lot of white into the shadows to create a smokey background.

I hope you enjoy watching my time-lapsed recording of my Oil Pastel Mum and Baby Ghost Portrait painting.

Oil Pastel Painting Fire in the Mountains

Oil Pastel Fire in the Mountains

Hello everyone, and welcome to another post. Today I would like to share with you an oil pastel painting I did on the everpresent forest and wildfires that are raging in the world due to climate change.

The oil pastel painting I did was of a photo I saw of a wildfire in California at night. I found this piece very difficult to captor the raging fire in a mountain with a dark solute of cabin or lodge as if standing on a rise looking down at the devastation.

I hope you enjoy watching my time-lapsed recording of my Oil Pastel Painting of a Fire in the Mountains.

Oil Pastel Painting Wallpapering in the Day

Today I decided to create an oil pastel painting of a scene where two painter and decorators wallpaper in the day.

I got the idea from seeing a few oil pastel paintings where a painter was painting in the night sky, so I decided to do the opposite but with wallpaper. I also added the wallpaper table, bucket of paste and box of rolled wallpaper.

I tried to keep to the illusion of that the two decorators where wallpapering their environment by adding trees and birds with clouds floating in the sky.

This oil pastel painting was enjoyable to create. I hope you enjoy my time-lapsed recording of my Oil Pastel Painting Wallpapering in the Day.
