Your paintings are beautiful! I'm curious how you get so much detail into such a small piece with oil pastels -- do you sharpen them to a point?
I answered Carol's question on her blog, but thought I'd add something here as well, for others who might be wondering about the Oil Pastels: I don't sharpen them, but do break them often in order get sharp edges. I use rubber taped "shapers" to move the pastel around and create nice edges and do some blending. Oil Pencils by Walnut Hollow are also a helpful tool.....and tiny areas of pastel can be broken off and applied with anything that works....a toothpick for instance.
This is the sweetest little wren! such amazing detail Joyce!
