Live Lessons: Fall Landscape with Oil Pastels
About This Lesson Series...
In this lesson series, we create a drawing of an Autumn landscape with oil pastels on pastel paper. Some people refer to the process of drawing with pastels as an act of painting. In this composition, we exploit the nature of oil pastels to create a drawing that resembles a painting. Colors are exaggerated and details are simplified.
