About this event

Atmospheric Landscapes - Oil and Cold Wax

Join talented Yorkshire artist Paula Dunn for an informal 1-day workshop on creating expressive landscapes using oil paints and cold wax medium. Cold wax is used at room temperature, without heat, and when combined with oil paints it can be used to produce depth and atmosphere to both abstract and landscape work.

In this experimental 1-day course you will be creating wet-on-wet, quick, dynamic paintings which are malleable from start to finish. Paula will share with you her techniques for creating atmospheric landscapes and dramatic skies with transparent colours and blending techniques using brayers, palette knives and brushes.

You will be working on paper specifically designed for painting with oils and will work towards completing a couple of small paintings by the end of the workshop.

The workshop will include information about techniques, as well as demonstrations and plenty of time for practice. 

Knowledge Areas:

  • Introduction to using cold wax medium with oils
  • Introduction to the tools
  • Working wet-on-wet
  • Using transparent and opaque colours
  • Creating textures and lines using a variety of tools and techniques
  • Incorporating pigments and other loose powders into your work
  • Blending techniques

Skill Level:

Designed for all levels of painting experience.

 Progression - other courses with Paula to extend your knowledge and practice:

  • An Introduction to Cold Wax Medium
  • Exploring cold wax medium
  • Advanced Oil and Cold Wax

Cost:

£80 per person - includes all materials and equipment.

Organiser The Craft House

Organiser of Atmospheric Landscapes - Oil and Cold Wax

The Craft House was established in 2016 in Saltaire by April Chamberlain, who continues to manage the business. Having started in Saltaire, The Craft House is now run from new, larger, premises at 109-111 Main Street, Bingley. We have a lovely ground floor cafe and welcoming workshop spaces on the first floor (reached by stairs with a handrail). We offer a vibrant programme of art, craft and textile workshops and courses for adults, enabling you to develop existing skills as well as try new activities. Working closely with a team of talented artist/maker tutors, we provide expertly-run classes in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. We cater for a range of skill levels, ranging from first-time participants to people with existing skill levels (including other professional artists and makers looking to develop their techniques). Our emphasis is on encouraging creativity and enjoyment whilst passing on key skills. We cater for private parties and events - please telephone us or call into the cafe to discuss.
