For the last couple of days, I've been experimenting with oil pastel, colored pencil and a different kind of paper. I have a pad of Artagan paper that I bought several years ago and was just never very fond of it. Sometimes when I experiment, I start with that. I was reading in the Color Pencil Workshop book about oil pastels and colored pencil so I decided to give one of the demos a shot. I started on a 5x7 size and once I decided I liked the technique, increased it to 8x10. Once I got to the background, I realized oil pastel was not the way to go, so my orchid is oil and colored pencil and the background entirely cp. I'm not sure I'll go any further than this with it, but it's worth trying again.
