Recently I decided to try my hand at oil pastels. I had some lying around from my college days, but never used them. I must say, I hated it. Kudos to those who use them and love them. You have more talent than me. I found it to be an awful muddy mess. I'll stick with my oil paints, thank you! I've seen some pretty amazing works with oil pastel, though. I think it is a beautiful medium.
Just not for me.
By all means, try them for yourself. To each his own and all that.
