in the studio i've been trying to think of a heart project for my classes. i came up with these oil pastel resist hearts. and since i'm really digging the bright colors, i think i'll roll with this idea.
just start with a small heart in the middle of the paper, and then carefully draw around the heart with alternating brightly colored oil pastels. make sure to leave a little bit of white in between each ring. you need to make sure the oil pastel is pretty thick, so you have to draw slowly and press hard. this is trickier than it sounds for the students! just keep adding rings until you like it. the lines will not be perfect, but that is what will make them more interesting.
wishing you all a very happy valentine's day!
here's to beautiful bright hearts,
