More Drawing...

I recently got some R+F Handmade Paint Pigment Sticks and have been trying them. If you are interested in Oil Stick/Oil Bars/Pigment Sticks, you will love these babies. Buttery consistency and fantastic color and transparency. This first drawing is done with a Paynes Gray Pigment Stick. A bit more on the messy side of things working with the Pigment Sticks, but that's something I need to work on fixing myself with some gloves.

The second one was done with the W&N Oil Bars, Cadmium Red Deep

This was done with Shiva Oil Stick, and I quite like the matte in it's color.

Thanks for viewing. In the next few days I'm going to be having a few interviews of artist friends of mine who live here in Columbus Ohio.


  1. Hi. I use all kinds of paint sticks, for years.
    R and F for 20 years now/there's a hint of my age/
    and I have to say they are my favorites. They go on beautifully and dry true to color.
    Pleased to see your work.
