Frequently Asked Questions
Why Oil Pastels?
Why Not? Seriously they are so versatile, easy to get started, and perfect for testing out composition and designs for bigger paintings. But really, my favorite part is using them in mixed media for that extra pop of color.
Why is it called painting when there's no "paint"?
It's really about how the material is used and how it covers the entire surface of the paper. And honestly, doesn't it look like a painting when it's finished?
I need a basic set! Which one?
I do a complete review of brands and which ones work best and why inside the course and you’ll find out quite quickly that the student grade oil pastels are not worth your time. The short of it is I will always recommend Caran d’Ache oil pastels and you can find my optional supply list on my Amazon Storefront
What tools do you use for blending?
My fingers! In all honesty I just love blending with my hands. But usually the best way to blend is with another pastel itself. That’s why I go through so much white. There are lots of blending tools on the market, but I know very little about how to use them effectively because I prefer my fingers.
How do you keep them from smearing?
Oil pastels are a bit finicky for displaying. Because they never fully dry, you usually need to display them behind glass with a matboard. However, I have learned that the marks do oxidize over time (the oil evaporates) and I can spray a fixative and then a spray varnish on my canvases so that they can be hung without glass.
How do you clean up from oil pastels? Do you need mineral spirits?
Nope. Just buy a bag of scent-free baby wipes and you’re good to go for all your clean-up needs, including your hands!

“I have never known how to use my beautiful Sennelier oil pastels, which I owned for many years. I came across The Magic of Oil Pastels in an accidental but serendipitous way!! And thus begins another love!!
Kellee's enthusiasm, guidance, support and encouragement is at a high level!! Her course is jam packed with videos and instructions. I've only done a few lessons so far...but oh my, even to a novice like me with this medium, I think these little sticks of colour have no limits!!
Thank you Kellee Wynne Studios for sharing so much!!!”

“With very little background in art, this class let me create beautifully from the first video. The instruction is clear and helpful and the videos really guide you through technique without a lot of talk or 'information' that gets in the way.
I got right into it and am in love with the medium and am so excited about what I'm able to do within the first week or so. Wonderful investment, deep pleasure in this class. Also the Facebook group is very active and supportive. ”

“I don’t really have an art background, but I wanted so much to get creative in my life. Like in a daily practice.
With 3 kids under 5, I was in search of a medium that I could use quickly and with few supplies. Never was interested in oil pastels, until I came across The Magic of Oil Pastels and its 15-minutes art painting. I was sold!
The course is jam packed with tips and tricks on how to use oil pastels for painting (yes, painting!). But what I love the most about the course, it’s the freedom to play Kellee gifted us. There is no pressure, no dos and don’ts about her way to paint with oil pastels.
It’s so refreshing, and inspiring! Oh, and the Facebook community is worth gold!”

“I am an octogenarian mixed media artist who has had oil pastels and water soluble oil pastels parked in my supplies since my children were in school. I rarely throw out anything art related or possibly art related so I am beyond enthusiastic about this course because Kellee Wynne has shown me so many ways to use oil pastels and to combine them with everything else on hand to produce really stunning results. Her techniques and presentation are wonderful!”

“I feel Kellee got the one of the best taste in colors. Thanks Kellee it’s so lucky to come across this course. Please keep doing it, never stop. Acrylic flower + oil pastel course would be great too ! Thanksss!”
