One thing I like to do, when using oil pastels, is to have them paint the paper first with black tempera...or I'm sure that any background color would work. It seems to grab the oil pastels better.

HI Ken,
I really like this idea of creating the"next" painting.  We have done impressionist studies with oil pastels and found that a coat of mod-podge really gives it a painterly look.
