Oil Pastels

During COVID I needed something new to occupy my time due to some of my usual activities being shut down. I have always wanted to try oil pastels but never had the time or motivation to do so. When COVID hit, I had plenty of time for new hobbies. I finally took the leap and tried oil pastels. It requires lots of practice but I continue to improve each time I use them. It helped me cope by keeping my mind occupied and focused on more positive things. 

 

I am a student at Trinidad State Junior College. I submitted this work for my art appreciation class. It is one of my first artworks with oil pastels.
