      1. Oil Pastels are a great medium. There are so many ways you could approach a sunrise. Start with the surface: if paper, then using Senneliers are best followed by neopastels or mungyo-gallery – these three are the softest w/Senneliers the softest and can be smeared/layered onto paper very easily. You could do a sunrise on tinted paper letting the color peak through. Using a knife for smearing or laying down the OPs could give a very textural appearance.
        On a masonite board or ampersand board – you can use virtually any artist quality OPs (student quality is hard w/too much wax difficult to spread around). Layering by hand or with a knife both would work well.

        Using a razor on its side in either surface by scratching, cutting, or scraping through the OPS and gives some amazing blends.

        Best suggestion for OPs is to play around with the medium to get a feel for the brand and surface. It can yield some brilliant sunrises. I have several sunrises in my landscape or seascape galleries w/oil pastels (tabs at top of my blog).

        Can’t wait to see what you do!
