"Dead fish do not SWIM around in jealous tides" - Scott Weiland
Watching videos from the Misty Mawn Portrait class - Face to Face with Mixed Media sparked some oil pastel play. The theme SWIM comes from Illustration Friday and the cool fish came from The Graphics Fairy. The great thing about the oils is that you can wipe off something if you don't like it - try that with acrylics - they don't budge. However, when you are done you have quite a sticky page.
The background is pretty junk paper that has been painted with Carla Sonheim's Abstracted Flowers Tutorial for Kristin Dudish's Tutorial Tryouts.
