Infinite Freedom in oil painting means having a choice, to paint traditionally or solvent free. It’s a choice today that does not involve sacrificing quality of materials for your health or the environment.
Traditional oils offer a unique experience of engaging with a material that has been in the making for over 1500 years.
Water mixable oils utilize a centuries old technology that enables you to continue to enjoy the same experience without the use of solvents, and for many, this obliterates an obstacle that has prevented them from enjoying the singular pleasure of painting in oils. In this 1/2 day, we will explore both as one medium and distinguish them as manifestations of the same painting ideal.
The PRESENTATION will include an informative presentation, a hands-on participatory demonstration of materials, and free samples to take home with you and explore on your own. Open to painters just starting out or well into their practice.
