Oil Pastel Step by Step

This comprehensive book offers in-depth instruction on creating vibrant paintings with the often overlooked but versatile medium, oil pastel. A relatively new fine art medium, oil pastels are relatively inexpensive and may be used directly in dry form with minimal set-up and easy cleanup, so beginners can get started right away!

Oil Pastel Step by Step opens with a thorough introduction to basic oil pastel tools and techniques. Then, artist-author Nathan Rohlander shows how to render a wide range of subjects — from flowers and animals to landscapes and portraits — with simple, step-by-step demonstrations and stunning illustrations.

Rohlander's bright, vibrant paintings have been featured in the pages of Esquire and Shuz magazines, on the cover of Coast magazine, in Super Bowl commercials, in numerous television shows, and even in MTV videos. Having graduated with honors and a fine arts degree from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Rohlander is currently working on a master of fine arts degree at California State University, Long Beach. He lives and works in Los Angeles, but he has spent considerable time in Europe, South America, and Asia, gaining creative inspiration and refining his global perspective.
