Bonnie Griffith: Oil and Cold Wax
September 27 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Bonnie Griffith will use a mix of oil and cold wax medium, brayering layers of paint to create an abstracted landscape. She will use a variety of textures created with stamps, tools, inks, and other items to create a mixed media piece on a wooden panel. Using oil paint mixed with cold wax medium on wood primed panels, one can layer color with brayed or palette knife; incise thru layers to reveal previous ones, texture with a variety of tools to create impressionistic or abstracted landscapes. Examples of work will be brought to demo and a painting will be completed to illustrate the process used.
