Let’s meet up and make oil pastel scraperboards!
Due to popular demand I am doing another oil pastel scraperboard workshop on a Saturday and I thought you guys might like to join.
This is a fantastic technique that everyone can do. You are guaranteed a great-looking drawing at the end!

We’ll apply layers of oil pastel and then use tools such as toothpicks and palette knives to scratch out a drawing which appears in colour surrounded by black. The effect is beautiful.

To give you plenty of opportunity to practice we each make about twelve 10x10 cm drawings and then choose the best to combine into your final composition of say 9 drawings put together.

I’ll suggest a theme and give examples or even things to trace if you have no ideas of your own. Due to the binding theme of colour against black, even the most random selection of images goes together just fine. So you’ll have a lovely drawing to take home, and will have developed mark-making, compositional and observation skills along the way without even realising it!
