Art Class - Oil Pastel

Overlooking the Wensum
The original sketch for this was done after watching a DVD on Manet, who often drew his friends in his paintings.  This is Mike sitting at a Wensum Lodge Cafe table sketching the opposite view to me. The following week we scaled up our sketches and as I had been experimenting with oil pastels at home I decided to use these. It was a lot harder than I thought especially where I needed detail.  I think the only bit I really like is the trees. Poor Mike has aged at least ten years.
