Over the last few days I made some bird drawings with oil pastells in my Sketchbook. I have been loving oil pastells forever, but I always hesitated using them to create art because of their property not to dry. After drawing in mixed media every day for one year I discovered that the process is the thing I really love about making art. It became absolutely unimportant for me to create good work. Knowning and feeling that freed me up in a completely new way. That was, what made it so easy to play with the pastels even if they are messy, they do not dry and the pages stick together. You will find some tips in my post how I prevent them from smearing and of course the drawings I made. I will also give you the links to the pastels I’ve used.
