Resist Paintings with Oil Pastels and Water Colours

Irresistible Skylines

Last week, the boys in class 6B created some striking paintings using the Resist method.

This method involves creating an initial drawing using an Oil Pastel. The boys created their skylines with a corresponding reflection beneath a horizon-line using the pastels.

We then moved to our water-colours, from which we chose tones sympathetic to the existing outline. We then painted over the buildings, with the area outlined in oil resisting the water-colour paint. This creates an interesting effect and is another good example of mixing media for exciting results.

Some boys created fictitious skylines, while others chose to include landmark buildings to give their works geographical specificity.
