Recently on a trip to a big city art store I bought myself a couple of oil sticks. Hadn’t used them in years so it felt like a fun experiment. Yesterday A Most Excellent Friend gave me a box of oil sticks she no longer used so the experimenting has real legs now.
Does anyone else use them? Any particular ways you enjoy using them? Would love to hear from you. Or do you have another favourite tool?
Sidebar: I also visited Christine at her studio yesterday and seeing her new big works up close was so great. I seriously wanted to feed her more pink bubbles and sneak a couple into my car but had only taken the small vehicle. Chris, be warned, if you see the big Land Rover pull up outside… They are beautiful pieces :-]
