and color mixing. Or any websites. I have seen only one book on oil pastels and color mixing, I was wondering if anyone knows of any?

. . . check out the oil pastellists society webpage (www. allart.com I think) and the Pastellists Journal. The latter started a regular oil pastel feature. The first one was in the January/February issue.
