When inspiration comes, oil pastels can be easily used for quick sketching or painting. They are similar to oil paints, but they don’t harden or dry due to their crayon-like texture and soft consistency which smoothly glides along paper. Get fun and artsy tips on this medium from the owner of Pekoe & Bean, an eclectic tea room and coffee shop in downtown Tinley Park. Add texture and vibrant colors to your drawings using techniques like layering, underpainting, and scraping down. Don’t forget to taste test some refreshing iced tea as you uncover this form of art!
