Bette Midler Tryptic

I believe technically when you create an image with oil pastels then it is classed as a painting as opposed to a drawing.  So this morning I was at my art class and created this portrait.  The tryptic shows the development over the the hour or so – although it must be said that the photos don’t do the painting any justice – they do provide a record of hour it was created.

It is a very long time since got my hands dirty with my oil pastels and I have to say I really enjoyed the experience. It goes without saying I would now change things but that really isn’t the point.  This is something I created in a finite amount of time and as such should stand on its own merit.  If I wish to improve on the work then I should make another version – this time with no time limit…perhaps I might.
