Let’s paint pretty pastel macarons in oil paint at 12:30pm Eastern Time today on YouTube! Here is the painting:
And here is the reference photo from GraphicStock (I can post it here because I have a graphicstock subscription)
I don’t have a pattern to trace because we are going to sketch the design together on the canvas with oil pastels or oil paint. I will be using water-mixable oils for the sake of easy clean up but feel free to use traditional oils or acrylics if you like. The steps will be about the same! You can watch the live class or the replay in the player below but if you want to chat with us live you need to watch at 12:30pm ET on YouTube.
Supplies available from sponsor Jerry’s Artarama!
- Oil pastels
- Oil Paint (I am using Berlin water mixable oils)
- 6″x12″ canvas
- Brushes -a combination of stiff and soft bristle. I am using Black swan (soft faux squirrel) and hog brushes from my stash
- Palette or palette paper (I am using a ceramic dish)
