Designed for the serious beginner, this volume offers step-by-step advice on painting in oil pastels. Lessons progress simply from easy subjects and techniques to the more difficult and complex. First, artists learn how to use oil pastels to create traditional paintings in still landscape and portraiture. Then the author explores 12 specific experimental techniques, including impasto, washes and monoprint; stencil and screen techniques; and methods for combining pastel with soft pastel and mixed media.
