Workshop Overview

Explore the beauty and liberating aspects of painting in oil and cold wax. Cold wax medium offers the unique characteristics of translucency, body, texture and topography through layering. Artists of all levels will find that painting with this medium offers many possibilities from landscapes to abstracts. We will experiment with the medium from the beginning, starting with underpainting, followed by multiple methods of adding texture and line, and finally through the magic of blending oil and wax in multiple layers to bring out luminous color and texture combinations.
