For face 3, I decided to use water soluble oil pastels. I continued to work large on the A3 printer paper as I did for face 1 and 2. I am more used to working with coloured pencils, which have a nice fine point. So working with these oil pastels was quite a challenge for me. I am glad I was working on a big piece of paper as it would be impossible to draw any fine detail with crayons. The other challenge I found working with this medium was that I could not rub out any mistakes. Any lines down on the paper were final. With these oil pastels I also could not smooth and blend the colours with my fingers, as you can with charcoal, graphite or soft pastels. I did not use water with these water soluble oil pastels because the paper would not allow for it. I would need to try that on water colour paper.
Once again I enjoyed working large and drawing with crayons gave me the feeling I was drawing like a child. Just putting down lines and colour without being too concerned about any perfections.
For face 4 I used black india ink, drawing with a bamboo dip pen. Again, I used the A3 printer paper because I enjoy working large at the moment. Creating the zen-tangle style hair was very relaxing.
