In this class, we will be taking a dive into the world of oil paint and cold wax. I'll be showing you the supplies I use and a variety of small landscape projects to get you inspired. I like starting small to get a good feel for my supplies, colors, and techniques. I'm sticking to smaller landscapes for this class because I really want you to focus on learning your paints and techniques. I'll probably offer a later class on going bigger and working on cradled board, but for this class, I wanted to keep it simple and work with our supplies and color for our small landscape projects.
Using oil paint mixed in with cold wax has been one of my favorite mediums for several years now. I love how thick and creamy the paint mixture is, I love that it is a matte finish and that it dries much faster than typical oil paint. It is a yummy mixture that spreads on like frosting and lets you get creative with the tools you use to apply it.
This class is for you if:
Supplies: I encourage you to use some of your favorite colors to do these projects. Get outside your comfort zone and experiment with colors. You don't need a lot of colors to start out with and if you enjoy color mixing - then you might just get a starter kit of colors and mix your own. I'm using a variety of colors and brands in class. I'd recommend you choose brands you can afford and some colors you like.
That is most of the main supplies I'll be using in class. I keep it more simple with landscapes usually.
By the end of this class, you'll be inspired and ready to create some beautiful tiny landscapes of your own.
Your project: Is simple... you'll grab some paper and supplies and play. I'd love for you to do a variety of landscapes. Playing with your color, horizon lines and techniques. I'm really looking forward to seeing your projects, so be sure to come back and show them off - don't forget to save your color palette - I'd love to know the colors you used in your landscape!
