Cathy Hegman, Medusa Complexities Fashionista VII,
This past December I was lucky to win three tubes of Daniel Smith Water Soluble Oil Colors: French Ultramarine, Permanent Alizarin Crimson and Hansa Yellow Medium. The prize also included a Vincent Pro Masterpiece Stretched Canvas, 20" x 24." The prize was offered by Dick Blick.
Well, I had not worked in oils for a long time and couldn't come up with any ideas. But then I kept seeing articles and sites on Cold Wax Painting. The art work that I saw, in this medium, really got me excited. (Isn't the above art work beautiful?)
Now I can't wait to begin experimenting with oil paints and Dorland's Wax Medium. Initially, I will probably work on small scale canvases. Here are a couple of resources if you're interested in trying out this medium:
- Oil & Wax: Resources for Cold Wax Painting - Lots of information here.
- Abstract Oil Painting with Dorland's Wax Medium - from Rebecca Crowell (PDF file).
