Oil and cold wax painting is a technique that encourages experimentation, exploration and a level of creativity. By blending cold wax with oil paint, as well as many other forms of pigment (powder, oil sticks, graphite to name just a few), the artist can build layers, excavate layers, and create texture. The interplay of colors in the many layers of the paintings creates luminosity and depth. The technique can be used for abstract art as well as more realistic art and portraiture. Rather than using brushes, most cold wax and oil is applied with a variety of including squeegees, brayers and palette knives (and the most flexible tool of all, fingers). A modest supply fee is paid to the instructor for shared consumables.
