About This Class

This class is designed for a beginner to learn the basics of color mixing while working with the medium oil pastels. The easy class project is to create an intriguing landscape with dramatic skies. Not only will you be learning color theory but how to layer colors for intense visual effects. Oil pastels lends itself to blending and making intense colored areas. Oil colors have been mainly used as a dry crayon but, adding a turpenoid to the crayon softens it to be pliable to paint. It a great process that you can easily create a painting to look like oils without the drying time. This is a quick and rewarding class with a beautiful outcome!
