  1. John, I’ve been doing a series of pictures with very faint images using the oil based pastels, which is about the only thing I do use. In an effort to get the colors more muted, I diluted the colors with olive oil. The trick is not to over-paint [easy to say, hard to]. If you don’t get it right the first time—you don’t get it right.
