Serena Barton- Bold and Uninhibited: Oil and Cold Wax Painting

July 6 @ 9:00 am - July 9 @ 4:00 pm

| $600

Creating abstract art with oil paint and cold wax medium is intuitive, bold, and full of discovery. Your pieces will take on lives of their own through the many layers of oil and cold wax you apply, addition of mixed media elements, and the areas you choose to scrape away. Each oil and cold wax piece is a result of a moment in time and space where elements converge in a one-time-only way.
I’ll show you lots of techniques for adding layers, textures, graphic touches and atmosphere to your work. We’ll do a lot of playful, gestural mark-making to activate the painting and get inspired. We’ll play with using rich, translucent inks on Yupo paper, incorporating oil and cold wax after the ink coat.

I encourage you to mix and match techniques in your own way and to develop your own style. We’ll play with Arches oil paper and Multi-Media Board which need no preparation before you dive in with paint and wax. You’ll learn how to use ordinary household tools to incise and make marks, how to scrape back for a dramatic look, and how to unify your compositions. We’ll also cover adding collage elements to your pieces. We’ll explore the creative process and ways to get your creativity flowing.
The watchword for this workshop is, “Experiment!” You’ll build up many layers, incise, scribble, scrape back, and texture your work, allowing each piece to tell its own story.

Level: Beginner (with some painting experience) to Intermediate
