Using Oil Pastels

The thing about using oil pastels is  that they come as thick sticks without any narrow point. Also they are non messy and quick to use. I chose oil pastels mainly because of the brilliant colors I wanted to show which are easy to obtain using this medium. Rendering the Kingfisher was a challenge in terms of getting the tiny details correct. Still, once I got it done, was quite happy with the result. Enough to post it here!
