Thanks Terri. I was very careful not to overdo it.

Re: Oil Pastel Tutorial - Landscape painting start to finish..step by step process

Thanks Rich!

This has helped me in a big way, and I can appreciate the great amount of effort it took to 'produce' this.

I think this should be a permanent 'sticky' so that other beginners can easily find it.

An excellent contribution.

Regards,
Trier

Thank you Trier! I'm happy it helped you. I'm not sure how to make it a sticky, but I think that's a good idea... Perhaps Christel knows how to do that.

Trier - there is a subforum for oil pastel tutorials at here and I'll move it there in time.
Rich - your thread is stickied already

Re: Oil Pastel Tutorial - Landscape painting start to finish..step by step process

I'm learning such a lot - thank you so much. Never thought of using soft pastels as an underpainting but will definitely give it a try. Instead of using Sennelier fixative over the soft pastels (which in my country is uber-expensive) do you think hairspray would do the same job?

Thanks so much for sharing. Looking forward to the next installment.
Pat

Hairspray has been used extensively for soft pastels until someone found out that it adversely affects the paper due to the oils in the hairspray. I use a thinned solution of Tough as Nails Varnish from Creative Talents.

La Pelouiniere - I'm very happy it was helpful. Thank you!

Pat - Thank you! I've never used hairspray, but I've read from others that have. I don't know how it would work. As Christel has said, it might damage the paper. I guess you could try it and see how it works for you. Maybe it would work on thicker paper and a very careful application

This is wonderful. I am just starting to use oil pastels. You are answering a lot of my questions and saving me lots of trial and error time.

Thank you.

I have completed atepa up to here. Just have to say ... I hate landscapes, never do them because they all look ordinary. Last night ... Creating the background worked. My blending technique offers new opportunities.

Many thanks
