What Did Santa Bring? by hank1 What Did Santa Bring? by hank1
Pastels
18 x 17"
2007
(Changed in 2011)
See 2007 version Here: [link]

The idea in the '07 version was to show what an artist might want for Christmas. True enough, but not much of a universal statement. And too much yellow and orange overall color. Needed something to set the scene off which I saw as a color seen nowhere else in the painting. Also, the '07 photo of the picture is way off color. Better camera, closer to correct color.

This little green-blue package took some 8 hours work. That is, painting work. (Took me an hour to wrap my skull in the paper.) Almost as if I'd forgotten how to use pastels. But no, a lot of it was moving this one from my tiny studio to the living room where I re-setup the still life, and back again. This, while I'm working on a painting in oils. Just not enough room.

This turned out beautifully. Oil Pastels and I have never quite agreed with each other :no:

Thank you, Danny. This is not Oil pastels, just regular ones. I've tried oil pastels too and don't get it.

Same here. Don't get them, don't like them. Probably my least favorite medium in the world.
