In keeping with the food theme, like the drawing of an apple, here is an oil pastel drawing of an ice cream cone. The oil pastel medium lends itself to techniques like blending and scratching, which helps add dimension to the art. The ice cream cone shape and colors were blocked in first, and texture details were added to the cherry and cone. I started by blending the chocolate ice cream with my fingers, and then continued with the rest of the drawing. Once the blending was complete a few more cycles of drawing in details and blending were continued. The quick oil pastel sketch was finished by adding a cherry on top.
