Sunflower painting with Oil Pastel

Oil Pastel is a painting and drawing medium that is similar to pastels and wax crayons, as it consist of pigment mixed with a non-drying oil and wax binder. The surface of an oil pastel painting is therefore less powdery, but more difficult to protect with a fixative. Oil pastels provide a harder edge than "soft" or "French" pastels but are more difficult to blend.

No flower can lift one’s spirit like sunflower, these cheery bloomers are bright as the warm summer sun.  Sunflowers are a symbol of happiness and optimism, they also represent longevity, love and loyalty.

Flower painting with Watercolors

Watercolor paint is a translucent art medium, basically it is a colored pigment in a water-soluble binder. The paint dissolves when you add water allowing the pigment to spread with a brush.

Watercolor is considered difficult to some because it needs to be planned in details and executed with speed, skill and confidence, but in the end it all depends on what the artist wants to master in.  Although it can be a good start for beginner artists to start, as it is inexpensive hobby to pick up.  All you will need is watercolor paint, piece of watercolor paper, painting brush, palette and some water to get started.
