Here, I let my hand wander through the times my
Would run wild, where my crayons would lead the way to
Never planned, take control of colors… the vanguard
Of an army
Of ideas lying in the underlayer, waiting to spring out
Uninhibited, uninhabited by minds already born…
As a much younger person I used to let my hand roam freely on the page creating beautiful shapes which with time got lost… Here I tried to recapture that talent but it will need some practice.
The good part is that my oil pastel experience is getting on 🙂
I am posting today three of my first sketches ( well, almost, I tried out my hand on faces & profiles too )
Those sketches were very significant to me. They let me fantasize and peak, into a future I thought
could only stay in the domain of dreams 🙂
Have a wonderful day!
This Pastel crayons drawing was inspired by the film I had seen ” Girl with a pearl earring ” with scarlett Johansson as the main character.
I’ll put in the information about this film in case you are interested in watching it, it infuses you in the world of art and if you are not too sure about your future as an artist, it stimulates and encourages you in that direction. I’ll see if I have the possibility to find it on you tube and post it to you.
Let me know what you think about this drawing!

In my beginnings, I wanted to experiment every way of drawing, painting, techniques tools and materials. ( I was very curious and adventurous ) There is such an array , I don’t think I’ll ever get through the collection , but that is the reason for the heterogeneity of my paintings and drawings and the different approaches and expressions in my art.
This was drawn in Pastel crayons.
I love its consistency, and the effect it has as a whole.
But I somehow ended up working recently exclusively with acrylic.
My next ” dare ” is to venture into the ” hazards ” of oil painting. I know it is far less simple than acrylic, the fumes, the cleaning up after with white spirit which is so toxic… If you have any suggestions about how to use oil paint in a ecological way, I’m open to new ideas.
Let me know what you think about Pastel.
Have a good day!
