i guess you could say i've been lazy lately. sorry! i haven't been too inspired or had great materials to paint on, so it's tough to get excited about the painting. also, i have more important things on my mind right now-- like buying curtains.

today's post is a new technique for me. it's from a really quick sketch i did of a friend a few months ago. then i used oil pastel over it, linseed oil over that to "bind" the pastel (i'm not sure what it will do exactly), and then used watercolor in the negative spaces... haha. a bit strange if you've ever worked with these materials. or, if you understand just how much oil & water repel one another. :)

regardless, this is result! i just laugh because of the illogical absurdity of this process. and it only took me about 20 minutes.
