so that they belong to the work and to soften the edges with a perfect appearance.
Techniques with oil pastel
The pastels are applied in a linear fashion. Like hatch paths, lines overlap. Line layers can be short, but this is not a rule you should follow. With the layers you will create the solid effect that will make your work of art stand out.
Stippling is another popular method. It’s about using small dots to create an object or create a hatch. Stippling works very well with oil pastels and is an easy technique to master. Take control of the artwork as you dominate the page armed with
your oil pastel to create something supremely superb with something so small. It’s an amazing technique and it would be great if you could add it to your list of artistic skills.
