This has the look of oil pastel Cesare. Some vivid colour here.

Many thanks John. Maybe this is the effect of cotton bud.

excellent technique Cesare lovely loose and vibrant work

Thank you, Dennis and David, for your kind comments.

Good palette, and composition Cesare. I've heard it all now - using a cotton bud! :)

Many thanks, Carole. Yes Carole, I thought with cotton bud I could have mix and soften the colours like or even better than with palette knife, because I put the colours from the tube directly on the canvas paper.

Spectacular result Cesare, and a very novel way to create it.

Many thanks, Fiona.
