I found my notes on this painting a few days ago. I was surprised to read that the same colors I used for Shelley’s face I also used for Rosie’s nose. I guess I forgot.
I used water-soluble oils for this painting over a decade ago. I haven’t touched my oils in at least three years. But the other day, I started playing with oil pastels. I think I would really enjoy using chalky pastels, but I can’t stand the sound they make on drawing surfaces.
I have a few unfinished paintings. I plan to work the oil pastels into them, and if not that, give them to Goodwill or the dump.
