Oil Pastel Tutorial

Hello Folks! This is my first post after a long time. Last two months have been quite hectic and added to that, my mind kept changing its decisions about life and goals, however, recently I re-opened my eyes after we crossed a 10,000 subscribers on YouTube! It was my dream once upon a time which came true today. So, after realizing my added responsibilities and the idea of 20,000 eyes eagerly waiting to see my content, I came back to earth to pay a tribute and to once again continue my youtube journey. Here’s another oil pastel tutorial, which is most requested by many of my viewers. The video tutorial is at the end of the post.

This painting is different from my infamous ‘Midnight Owl’ in the sense that here I have chosen a limited color palette and I tried drawing a realistic moon here. Interestingly, I looked at the sky the next day after finishing the painting and the moon was exactly like the one here: large and golden!
