I’ve had a box of oil pastels sitting amongst my art materials for several years now, but I’ve never before actually used them. For day 73 of 365 Days Wild I finally decided to try them out. They’re a very different medium to anything else that I’m used to using. They’re definitely not suitable for adding any great amount of detail, but I did my best.
The picture is based on the honey bee on the calendula photograph that I took in Bottesford churchyard on my day 62 outing.
