Hi Loretta - I saw some unbelievable oil pastel paintings on the net - so detailed and really, looking like brilliant oil paintings. The thing is, I wonder how much effort goes in to making oil pastel look like oil paint? And is it worth it? Anyway, it is good to experiment but I have a feeling my oil pastels will look more like oil pastels. Hug from Mike

I have drawn many nudes and pinups since then, I still have the first one I did at 12 yrs old. I have drawn mostly in pencil but have done some in colored pencil, pastels and watercolors. Most of my drawings have been of people and fashions.
