OIL PASTEL SOCIETY MASTER ARTIST
Kathleen R Worgul
Painting has been my passion for 40 years. Although landscape has been my main challenge and continues to be. I love painting portraits and some still life. I paint in Acrylics as well. I began in soft pastel and painted for 20 yrs with them, until due to allergies, I changed mediums to Acrylic. About 5 yrs ago I discovered oil pastels which allowed me to return to my favorite painting medium "pastels"! Although quite diffferent than soft pastels one still has all the wonderful colors at ones fingertips which is quite exciting. They are wonderful for traveling and plein air. One can paint over an acrylic background or use with oil paints. Oil pastels can be used on a variety of surfaces allowing for experimentation. I continue learning new and exciting ways to paint .
