Still haven't decided or gotten any pastels. I'm about ready to purchase some though. I hear some people say the oil pastels are the only way, others say no way..get soft pastels. I'm now leaning towards the soft ones. Might go to the library tomorrow and see if their's any books on it. I could read forever on how too from the web, but going to try and just do it my own way thru experience.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

They say oil pastels are a wild and untameable medium.  But then again Im wilder and more untameable.
