Art A Level: Oil Pastel Portraits

I'm doing an Art A-Level at the school I work at (well, I work in Primary). I would say that it's just for fun, but I'm really hoping I will get a good grade!

To learn to use oil pastels I coloured with them directly on top of photocopied images of people (I'm focusing on portraiture). On some of them you will notice that I used only warm or cold colours: others are mixed. I've actually made so many of these! It's a lot of fun to not have to worry about the drawing part, and I'd recommend it if you're feeling nervous and just want to get stuck in.
