Earth Day Oil Pastel

Throughout this project I have learned different techniques about using pastels. In this project I used an exact o knife to extract and bring out colors in the ground. By doing that I attempted to make the ground look like dirt. I also blended a lot of colors to create a variety of shades in each color. Another thing I learned in this project was how to create fauve pieces.  In my piece I tried to apply a fauve style with the tree. One last thing I learned, from my experience, is that oil pastel is not my medium to draw with. However, I am glad that I have been able to try and see that it is not my medium. Overall, I have learned more to using oil pastel than I ever have.
