Oil Pastel Painting Limited Palette Edition

Oil pastel painting can be challenging if done using a limited palette. In this particular piece, I used only black, gray, and white to emphasize the dreamy, breezy landscape in muted colors.

My concept is that of a young girl on a hammock. The title, Hayahay, means peaceful or tranquil. I would like to depict a quiet scene in oil pastel.

First, I sketched using gray oil pastel as the midtone.

Second, I colored in black oil pastel to define the darker areas.

Third, I highlighted using white oil pastel to add to the finishing touches.

Voila! My oil pastel painting in limited palette edition.
