Workshop Overview

Luminous layers of oil paint blended with cold wax medium make this technique magical, deep and rich. From realism to abstraction, the medium will enhance any painting style. Several paintings will be finished in class and more started. Each artist will receive a complete instruction manual for future reference. We will learn tools & techniques for adding all kinds of texture, using mark making tools, reduction methods, painting with brayer, palette knife and squeegee. We will study composition and the elements and principals of art. You will fall in love with the medium and everything it can do for your art.
