I’ve got some oil pastels. I’ve not tried these before so I spent an afternoon sketching some daffodils. I also came across some conte crayons and inktense blocks so had a go with those as well.

I really enjoyed the conte crayons and inktense blocks. I think that the square shape of these felt good in my hand while I was drawing and helped give my work more expressive lines.

The oil pastels worked well too. I like the permanency of them, in that the lines can’t be erased once they have been made, but I didn’t like how messy they were.

The work I produced can be viewed here.
