Oil Pastel Landscape – Lone Tree — 7 Comments

  1. Thank you! I enjoyed exploring a new medium; I quite like oil pastels! Wish I could participate “live” but you are so personable, it is nearly as good recorded.

  2.  Matt — I am just curious to learn what is the heaviest tooth of paper made for a design such as this one? I learned tonight that you chose a smooth paper to create easier transitions, but I am wondering what the heaviest tooth paper you could use for a painting that required a lot of layers? Per usual — I think your classes are wonderful beyond words! Thank you. Anne

    • Hi Anne,

      The heaviest tooth surface that you may use could be “rough” watercolor paper – not to be confused with “cold press” watercolor paper. There are lots of variations in between though and using the textured side of Mi-Teintes paper will likely be enough.
