Today, as I drove toward home , Something told me to turn into the consignment shop I pass by every day. There I found a small set of oil pencils. The few dollars I spent was more than paid back in the simple joy of their use. I have used -- and do enjoy using oil pastel-- but these were oil pencils. They lend to sketches a softer effect than oil pastels as I learned when I sketched some faces in a restaurant. I can't wait to try them with turpentine.
