When I mentioned that I am going to buy oil pastels, E said "Do you even use crayons?" Er, to tell you the truth, no. I hate crayons LOL
But as I mentioned in the earlier post, I was intrigued to try an artist-grade oil pastel because I saw how people can make such a solid and smooth gradient with them.
It was still messy though, I need to make sure I didn't make a stain on my precious light-colored work chair.
What do you think?
I had a bad experience with crayon when I was younger. It’s a medium that we’re often given to play with as a kids. I actually hate them. They’re messy and very hard to control. Not to mention it was really hard to make a solid color because of the texture.
I had boxes and boxes of brand new crayons in my drawer that I never use. They’re given to me just because they think I like to draw.
A couple weeks ago, I saw a video on Youtube about soft oil pastel. I was curious about how even the color they produce. So it must be about quality afterall…
I must say I am impressed. I am using a rough watercolor paper here so the texture shows, but last night when I tried it on a smoother paper, it easily cover the whole area. Love it! ❤️
More project to come…

Back to my beloved #polychromos
It's always nice to do stuff with your hand manually. I've been working a lot with digital art lately and at one point I need to use traditional media to bring back the 'feel'.
Love yourself tea time.
As many of you know, I always have dedicated tea time. It is usually around 2.30 or 3 pm. I will always have snacks ready for those special times. Sometimes it can be just a bikkies.
After I got pregnant, I kinda lost interest in my dear black tea with milk. So, these days, I will only have warm water or maybe a hot chocolate.
Do you usually have a dedicated tea time? 😋

A few hand-drawn watercolor patterns that I did a while ago for a mini notebook cover project.
The overall theme was Shibori, but I think the koi fish was a bit off the line. I like it, so it's fine :)
I was drawing this on the bed last night, then E come and asked me which client this drawing was for. I said this one is just for fun.
That makes me think... when was the last time I draw for fun?
That took me back a bit. I rarely draw for fun. I mostly do commission arts or maybe gift art. I do commit to my monthly #usk meetup but that's it. I remember I was listening to @sarahburnsstudio chat vlog last week and she said she hate commission. And how we as an artist often got trapped by needing to do a commission for the money.
This is something that I need to think deeper about...
Have you been in the same position?
Anyway, I've never done a DTIYS before, this one is from @rochewoodworthillustration for her #roche115k congratulations˜!!!!
