Welcome to Oil Pastels Artist. My name is Eric and I am an artist working in oil pastels and I have built this website to share my knowledge and insights in oil pastels.
Here you will find information on how to use oil pastels, tips and techniques with oil pastels, interviews with other oil pastel artists, advice on what brands to use, and pretty much everything else under the sun when it comes to oil pastels.
The question people have first is where to get started. Well if you are new to oil pastels, you might want to read my guide on Oil Pastels for Beginners. More advanced oil pastelists might be interested in my study in oil pastels techniques based on a popular piece I did in 2011.
I have several other articles and blog posts covering oil pastels as well as some great interviews with artists who work with oil pastels:
