Playing with Oil Pastels

One more art class and it’s over for my artistic abilities this summer. I was hoping that taking a class would get me drawing again but I can’t seem to manage my time well enough to crack open my pad and pencils every other day. Here are three pieces from my fifth art class. We used oil pastels and then some crazy time of black paint that made the drawings look like, well, crap up close but strangely cool on camera.

It’s been a tough class for me. On the first day, I told myself that I wasn’t just paying to be in a room with a naked guy, I wanted to learn from the teacher. But her directions were driving me nuts during this last class. And I haven’t really felt particularly adventurous about all the new materials we’ve tried out in class. So, much for enjoying going out of my comfort zone!
