I also enjoy working with oil pastels and I have come up with a fabulous technique in working in this medium. I call the technique Oil Pastel Smudge and it involves working with a template you create yourself. The technique encompasses the use of math and cognitive thinking skills and is great fun once you learn a few simple rules.
Learn what a "Smudge" can do! Oil Pastel Smudge
The Oil Pastel Smudge technique is an easy, straightforward, simple-to-learn artistic style working with oil pastels, a template which we create ourselves and smudging the pastel color onto the final piece of paper. This process is able to create the distinct hard lines you see in the samples above and on the website OilPastelSmudge.com In class you will learn to create everything from beautiful landscapes, floral art, abstract works and more in a matter of minutes, once you understand the technique, whether you are a beginner to creating art or have some experience working in oil pastels. It is great fun to "Smudge" and oh the beautiful art you will create! Learn to view the world and art differently. Several students have finished a piece and framed one, for the first time, after taking other art classes. The technique is great for creating cards and other gift giving ideas. All will be shared in class. Be sure to visit the OilPastelSmudge.com website to see more of this innovative award winning technique.
