Oil pastel demo

This past week I did a demo at a local art association using oil pastels. There was a great crowd and lots of interest in the medium. It is not generally known as a fine art medium as there are not many artists in this area who use them. I use oil pastels almost exclusively now and really like their vibrancy and versatility. Here are some pics of the demo and my demo piece. I will be finishing this and post the finish. I can never finish a painting during a demo. I also donated a print of an oil pastel and it is shown with the winner.


  1. Fun Pat! That is so great . I would love to get into oil pastels too sometime-hope I can catch your next demo!

  2. Mmmmm...I love oil pastels!
    I hope you had a great time with your students. I know they learned a lot from you.
