Oil Pastel Painting of Japan

Oil Pastel of Japan

To start of my Youtube and Blog adventure I decided to do an oil pastel piece on Japan.

The image I chose to create was to have mount Fuji in the background with a large red sun that represented the red dot of the Japanese flag. I then added a small temple at the bottom with a small island with a bridge and samurai looking out over the ocean as a small fishing boat rowed its way back to shore as the giant sun begins to set.

To create the piece I used oil pastels and kitchen paper to blend the colours, with the help of a blending stick and then used an HB10 pencil to shade in the fishing boat, land, bridge and temple.

I hope you enjoy my time-lapsed recording of my Oil Pastel Painting of Japan.
