Paint abstract pieces adventurously and intuitively in this three-day workshop! We’ll work on oil paper and Multimedia Artboard to create with joy and abandon. I’ll show you all the basics as well as many of my favorite techniques.
Cold wax medium is a malleable paste of beeswax, odorless mineral spirits, and resin. It mixes with oil paint to create a luscious surface that can be textured, smoothed, layered, incised, and scraped back. We’ll use a variety of tools to experiment with texture and layers. We’ll explore using lightweight papers to add collage elements that blend in and become part of the painting.
We’ll play with making bold marks, adding and subtracting elements as we go. We will cultivate a playful atmosphere, using this medium where there are no mistakes!
Whether you’re new to the medium or more experienced, you’ll find something in this workshop to inspire you.
