  • Megan Morgan- Oil Pastels on Burlap

  • www.meganmorganfinartist.com


    Learn to hand stretch repurposed burlap onto wooden canvases and draw on the surface with oil pastels.

    We will start by selecting a piece of burlap and deciding what section will be utilized to create the canvas. As you plan your composition, you may hand-stretch burlap that has typography and graphics printed on its surface or you may prefer plain burlap. I enjoy using burlap that has small holes, snags, or slightly damaged areas because I feel that makes the final piece uniquely yours. We will go over basic oil pastels techniques such as: Heavy Pressure Blending, Light Pressure Blending, Color Mixing, Stippling, Scumbling, Sgraffito, and using Oil for blended appearances.

    Our goal will be to successfully hand-stretch your own canvas, creativity make composition choices, and take pleasure in drawing on richly textured surfaces.

    I will provide repurposed burlap at no cost. I will setup a still life to draw from, and please feel free to bring your favorite objects to draw (i.e. fruit, small vintage items, etc.)
