Upcoming cold wax and oil workshop


Exploring the Surface: Painting with Cold Wax

Whether brushing, drawing, scratching, scraping, rubbing, pressing, pushing, pulling or employing knife techniques, this ancient medium fosters versatility. Its translucent qualities allow light to penetrate into the paint surface, emphasizing rich and vibrant colour, depth and tone.

  1. The first painting is lovely, but seeing the whole diptych, it's just so beautiful. Love the rich autumn colors.
