I feel an unabashed love for the material appearance of oil pastels (Caran d’Ache Neopastels to be precise). I love to describe somewhat “loopy” forms with them. I love mixing colors by abrasion. I love the way that you can drag one color across another and create as it were almost veils of color.
So even when the situation is stalled (as I make drawings for a painting that I’m unsure how to complete), I can nonetheless love the act of drawing because the materials themselves are so beautiful.
I have rehearsed these forms many times and they still hold my interest. Indeed, it’s stronger than that. They hold me captive.
