Water & Sky

As you may have already seen, I've been inspired to work in Oil and Wax to explore abstract work with thicker paint application. I'm really interested in the energy and dynamism  emotions of colour and primarily in the calming moods that can be achieved by working with teal, blue and off whites. 

In terms of my application of oil colour and wax, I predominantly use a mixture of both Winsor & Newton Griffin Alkyd and Melanie Cambridge Oils. If a higher pigment is still required I use Michael Harding Oils. I apply between 3-7 layers of oil colour to my work dependent on complexity. To get the great textural look - I have been using Gamblin Wax with the oil. Allows for wonderful mark making and energy.
