  • Oil Pastel: Flower

    Because oil pastels are so colorful and vibrant, they are the perfect medium (material) for creating images of flowers. Georgia O’Keeffe, an American artist, painted large colorful images of flowers.

     

    In this project you will create a richly colored image of a lilly.
