|Sunflowers (oil pastels)|
A Colorful Request
One day some of my students asked me to show how to use oil pastels and I quickly drew them some sunflowers. I used to draw and paint lots of sunflowers many years ago (I even painted them on a kitchen wall at my parents' house. My parents are awesome, I know!). So it was a familiar subject for me. It was easy, because I knew that the end result was going to be ok. I didn't have to be nervous at all. Maybe that is why the drawing looks boring to me. Maybe the excitement and nervousness is something I need, so that I can be happy with the end result. No pain, no gain?
