Oil Pastels

If you ever want to have a lot of fun with color without the expense or mess of paint, go out and pick up a set of oil pastels. I think they are possibly the cheapest color medium in the world. They are vivid, and you can blend them like paint. You can manipulate them with mineral spirits too. They can get a little slippery, but if you give your painting about a day, they will dry like paint and you can go after it again. this little painting was really fun to do so I hope you like it.
