Oil pastel sketch,trees and summer fields

oilpastel sketch, trees in summer fields
On hot days oil pastels are very nice to use as they get much softer. Depending on the brand it might even be necessary to keep them in the shade or covered. Sennelier oil pastels melt to almost liquid state in summer heat under direct sun. In this sketch I used a cheap standard student quality of oil pastels.

If you have not tried oil pastels yet this overview on how to use oil pastels might be helpful.

The sketch was done in my selfmade sketchbook which contains old monotype prints cut into smaller sheets.
