Oil Pastel Freedom is now available!

Needless to say, all the emotions that my mind and body can produce are having a party.

It’s taken a while to produce.

At first, I made the rookie mistake of wanting to include all the things but realized that it would overwhelm everybody, including myself.

I’m very passionate about Oil pastels. I hope this class really shows it.

I’ve included as much as possible for you to start using your pastels in a totally autonomous way.

I wouldn't want you to learn “how to draw a subject”; I want you to feel it’s materiality, its possibility.

You will learn:

  • How to draw with line, with form and from imagination.
  • We draw studies;
  • then, we draw from photos.
  • Finally, we make up a landscape.

This class has real-time demos and a very DIY approach.

Please note:

This class is for anyone who has been drawing for a little while. It is not a drawing class, although I will provide some resources to improve your drawing. This class is mainly for artists curious about oil pastels and those who want to loosen up in their drawing practice.

If you tend to fiddle too much with your drawings and your lines and want to break the stiffness, dear artist: oil pastels are for you.

If you join before September 19 you can apply the coupon

OPF-EARLYBIRD for a 15% discount.

Patreon introduced collections and I’ve been slowly arranging the 100+ posts into logical groups so when you join, you can find the medium or the topic you want to view. Hopefully next year, when I’m finished with all these health issues I will start filming again. Being able to put each post...

Hello Reader, It's been a while both here and maybe on other online spaces. I had a few rough patches along my chemo treatments. Some very ghastly episodes that involved a hospital stay and so many side effects that I questioned if chemo was even worth it. In the meantime I lost all desire to draw and felt like someone forgot me in an infinite tumble dry cycle. I could not find the right way up but somehow this week feels better and I'm using the smallest windows of feeling myself to do...

Hello Reader, This month I'm pondering the question: Where is home? Home is not where you were born; home is where all your attempts to escape cease. - Naguib Mahfouz You will probably see me share this quote over and over. It had a profound impact when I read it. It was a fleeting post on IG but it was absolutely meant for me in that second.I used to move every four years; there was something about that time frame that made me skedaddle from wherever I was: from a bad job, a sad love story,...
