Blue Venice - oil pastels by davepuls Blue Venice - oil pastels by davepuls
Sennelier oil pastels on Sennelier pastel card. 9x6 inches. After a famous impressionist painting by Manet.

I previously painted this in watercolours but much prefer this oil pastels version.

Manet definitely comes through in this. Nice colours. Continue to look at who you are inspired by.

Yes, and I've learned even more by copying them - even in different media.

Thank you! Oil pastels are amazing for experimenting, and there are loads of things I still want to try one day - but I love impressionist "brush strokes" so that's what I've been focusing on.
