Title: Wistful memories...
Post by: Old Hare on February 08, 2020, 03:55:30 AM
Hello everyone,

Hope you have a good winter! I have just finished one oil pastel:

It will go to an auction, and I will stay only with pictures and memories... It's a painting of a place where I was born (a town in a distance)... I will probably never return there... That's life....  :'( :coffee:

And one more work:

That's the church where I got married.  ::) Heaven knows if I ever return there...  :'( Looking forward to spring and art!  :painting:

What a wonderful way to create your memories on paper, Pawel.
The first scene is so tranquil, and the church with churchyard is lovely.
 :smitten: your pastel work.

Love your pastel paintings.  You are and inspiration to get out my chalks and go to work with them again.  If I only could find the time.

 :thankyou: :thankyou: I should be done with my dachshund by the end of this week. I'll be happy to post it. Then the painting needs to dry and I will think about next project.  ;) Actually, I have already two ideas I want to put on wood and canvas.  :painting:
Charle, I know what you mean.  :tickedoff:  :sweat: I also have little time, which means that I can work one hour or less (sometimes only five minutes) each day. The secret is to keep going EACH day.  ;) Another technique is to choose objects that are really captivating to you and they will pull you no matter what.  :yippee: Could be your kids, animals, plants, architecture, religious motives, whatever you love.  :gl2:

I especially like the first painting, though both are lovely. The colors of the landscape and the pinkish sky are breathtaking.

Finally here:


The dachshund of my friends, commissioned work. They will see it tomorrow, hope they will like it. Technical note: oil pastels on wood. When picture taken, light was from above, so the top corners are lighter than actual painting.

 :thankyou: for all positive feedback above  :thankyou:

... and I'm going to start new project :sweat: white canvas in front of me...  :painting:

Always a pleasure to share with PaintBasket  :hug:

He's gorgeous  :smitten:
 Oil pastel art is not something I've seen often before,  so I'm doubly impressed. I have a set of  Caren D'arch oil pastels that I look at every now and then but haven't a clue.

Hello everyone,

Another work in oil pastels:


At the base the orange hue is just a reflection from a table. It's oil pastel on wood.

All the best to all fellow artists!

very interesting work Pawel. It has an icon style look to it :clap: :clap: :clap:
Title: Re: Wistful memories...
Post by: Old Hare on July 04, 2020, 02:06:45 PM
 :thankyou: Yes, iconic style and simplification was one of my objectives. I was trying to find a balance between simplification/symbolism and realism. I will keep going in that direction from time to time... :heeha:
