Oil Pastels seem to be one of the most contentious of art mediums, a real marmite subject-you either love ‘em or hate ‘em. More than any other medium, beginners are often frustrated with their results. Yet with a little know how they can be invaluable in mixed media work and produce a range as delicate as watercolour or as rich as an oil painting. They are wonderfully vibrant, compact and easy to carry. This makes them the perfect convenient pigment to work with ‘plein air[see on] or to take on holiday.
