How to Draw With Oil Pastels
- Choose from pastel, watercolor paint, sandboard, or canvas. Each of these mediums has ample tooth or texture to make sure pastels adhere. Set papers with a thickness of 90 gsm for lighter sketch-like drawings. To produce something with a bolder palette, select papers with a thickness of 160 gsm. A smooth paper doesn’t adhere properly to your pastels. Always choose a paper size that suits your topic without leaving too much or too little space.
- Don’t use acid-containing papers, as they can result in color shifting and fragility.
- To create a unifying, harmonious feel, use paper colors close to your pastel colours. For example, choose a light-green pastel paper with lots of green shades for a setting in nature.
- Select paper colors that contrast with your pastel colours, to play with various moods and atmospheres. When you draw a blue lake with a black night sky, for example, choose a purple paper for a melancholy effect.
- Purchase a pastel package with the colors you wish from a trusted company. Unlike other types of pastels, a number of manufacturers don’t sell oil pastels there are only a handful that sell artist-level labels. Van Gogh Extra-Fine Artist Oil Pastels is a student classification for beginners but with a degree of consistency that is comparable with artist-grade labels. Seek the cheapest collection for artist-grade labels, or put together the palette of your choosing from the range of open stock.
- Think about the pictures you want to make and choose colors that match your ideas. Choose colors from open stock and create a nice palette.
- Pastels can be purchased from craft galleries, online retailers and big-box stores.
- For the most versatility select a combination of hard and soft pastels. Strong brands are better suited for finer details such as outlines and early layers, whereas softer brands are best suited to drawing on thick, saturated layers of firm pastel. Artist-grade brands are: Cray-Pas Specialist, Cretacolor Aqua Stic, Erengi Art Aspirer, Caran d’Ache Neopastel and Holbein, and Sennelier Oil Pastels, in order to be toughest to softest.
- Take note of the marks for which you draw most easily as you get more practice.
