Nelvia McGrath - "Like Father, Like Son"

Artist:  Nelvia McGrath
Title:  Like Father, Like Son
Size:  11"x7"
Medium/support:  Oil Pastel/grey paper
Painting Technique:  This is an experiment in trying to learn to use oil pastel.  Trying different brands to find the one that puts down enough pastel so that it can either be blended or moved around, haven't tried using solvent yet.  Always looking for options that wouldn't require matting and framing as everything on paper usually does.  Added in the chick to give this a bit of humor and some additional interest in the picture.

The pastels give good color and effect to this painting.
