Oil Pastels + Black Paper

Oil pastels portray vibrant colors to white paper or other light colored canvas. When it comes to black paper as a canvas, you must choose bright colored pastels so that they may complement with each other.

Basic Tools for Drawing

You can use any brand of oil pastels and black paper but here are the drawing tools that I used:

  • Reeves Oil Pastels
  • 150 GSM Black Paper

This is how your drawing should look like more or less.

Remember, practice makes perfect.

Step 1: Choose Your Image to Draw

You may take a real object (fry a sunny side up egg), shoot a photo, or just google an image. The image must be realistic. I got mine from Google: https://www.google.com.ph/search?q=realistic+egg+drawing&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjLnc-eqafXAhXDn5QKHawnBGcQ_AUICigB&biw=1164&bih=675#imgrc=O6aoJpBW8tfwAM:

Step 2: Prepare Your Color Palette

Analyze the colors that you see from your image source. If you have limited colors from your oil pastels, you can blend them to achieve the right colors you needed.

Step 3: Let's Draw!

1. Start by drawing the yolk based on your image source. It does not have to be a perfect circle. I used yellow as the base color of the egg yolk.

2. Put small, white oval-shaped highlights on the upper left part of your yolk to create a two-dimensional effect on your drawing.

8. Use a golden brown oil pastel to put some detail on the egg white. I blended brown and yellow oil pastels to create that golden brown finish on the roasted sides of the egg white.

9. Lastly, draw additional details like shadows on the egg white to make it more realistic using a silver or gray oil pastel.
