Have fun with this simple risk free process for practicing  painting and drawing. This approach is great for beginners and seasoned artists alike. 

Let me show you some of the wonderful things that can be done with magazines!





I will take you step by step through the process of using oil pastels  to create a complete makeover of a magazine  image. I will tell you how I choose  images and from what magazines. Once you've selected your image I will show you how to prep your surface and how to apply and blend oil pastels.  Once you have your base image completed I will show you how I use some of my favorite mixed media supplies to have even more fun! I use charcoal, acrylic,  water-soluble crayons and more.  ***As a bonus I demonstrate taking the image into my iPad to try out a variety of ideas before applying them to paper. Super fun, super easy, super helpful! 


Oil Pastel Inspiration

I will demonstrate a variety of ways to use magazine images in your art. I was first inspired to experiment with this process after discovering Barcelona based artist Guim Tió Zarraluki . He is best known for using oil pastels to alter fashion magazine images and has perfected a technique and style for recreating some very interesting abstracted makeovers. 

Using one of Guim's images as a reference I sketched  this girl into an art journal. I then added acrylic paint and oil pastels to give her personality. This was fun process and an excellent drawing challenge! 

Below are some examples of I have created using this simple and fun process!
