They're HERE! Breaking Open the NEW Sennelier Oil Pastels!

The cat is obviously oblivious to my sheer glee!

My box of 72 Sennelier oil pastels came today and it made my day! I ripped the box open immediately!

Here they are! I apologize for the soft photos, it was a very dark day today.

Close up of some of the reds, yellows and pinks
a touch of the greens and blues.

Gorgeous Red!

Beautiful pink!

So I grabbed something near by (in this case it was my grocery paper receipt) and commenced to do a quick little painting/sketch. I was talking earlier to a friend who is going on a trip to see the Mayan ruins so I guess that is what came through in my sketch.

About an inch and smidge high.
Notice the covering capabilities in the
blue highlights. They do cover very well. 

I used about 19 colours in this sketch.

So there you go a very quick update to the Sennelier fun saga. When I first opened the box I did get a sniff of something akin to volatiles but it didn't last too long nor was it overpowering. I have to be careful with that stuff.

I hope to do something more in the next week. Overnight I developed a cold (which has now turned into the flue) so I am feeling rather blech today but hope to be over it this week. My first impression though is that these are absolutely sumptuous! Stay tuned for more!
