Oil Pastels: Just Two

I say, when you don’t know what to draw or paint then do a still life. The sit very still… pun intended.

I wanted these pots to appear to be sitting a shiny or wet floor.

Oil pastel painting of clay pots is an oil pastel painting.

  1. Well they do look like they’re on a wet floor. Not too much reflection, but just enough. The deep red background gives the picture a nice heat.

    • I chose red as the opposite on the color wheel so the floor would stand out. And I love the appearance you say it gives. Thank you, Binky!

  4. A good mix, it really looks like the pots are on a wet floor.
    Someone told me “If you can’t think of anything to draw, draw with a different pen”. So far that has not worked for me :/

  5. The floor looks like it was just mopped. You certainly got the effect you wanted. Good work.

  6. looking good Deb, the reflection adds a deeper dimension, and the red adds a lovely feeling of warmth… not ‘Just Two’ … it’s “We Reflecting Two” for me… and they give a feeling of almost cuddling. one protecting and guarding the other. . mother and baby… xPenx.

    • I don’t what it is about several of my painting that give off the cuddling effects. Hmmm….Think maybe I need hugging? I’m happy to hear it though. To me that sounds like a lovey setting, and with what you told me about the background just adds to it. Thank you so much for this encouraging comment, Pen!

    • Thank you, Bob. I will have to keep practice so I don’t forget how…I forget sometimes how I created things.
      You must have taken a break from moving for me to see you hear. I hope all is going well with that.
      Thank you for the comment on my painting!

  9. You captured the floor reflection really well. That’s one thing I find hard to do in my comics. need more practice

    Reply
    • I thought about it for about a minute and have no idea how to go about doing that on a comic. So good luck with that, and I’m sending positive thought your way to help you make it happen.
      Thank you for the comment about my painting, Tony!

    I think that perhaps a couple of Skulls would have been a good one for your Halloween Still Life collection but I do like what you have chosen so no problemo 🙂 I do hope that your evening is a lovely one Deb, Mitch and Cici 🙂

  13. I think still life is a wonderful genre with a lot of potential – a world to be constructed and populated by the artist. Love your pots, and reflections are handled very well!
