Welcome :) it's great to have you with us. Yeah, it seems to me like oil pastels are a very underrated medium it's nice to have a little hub with other oil pastels enthusiasts.

I have a question for all you pastel users! As a total pastel newbie, I want to try them and start using them, but I don't know what brands are good. Right now for Graphite I use Derwent. If anyone has any general advice I'd love to hear it. Thank you! :) (Smile)

Nice! And what did you think about it? Did you like it? :D They are very smooth and easier to blend than other brand but the beginning can be a little disturbing
