Advanced Techniques in Oil and Cold Wax

The Hoffman Center follows the current CDC, State of Oregon and
City of Manzanita
Covid guidelines for all in-person workshops and events.

Neskowin artist, Lynne Wintermute, returns to Hoffman Center in an extended opportunity for students to deepen their experience in painting with oil and cold wax. The oil and cold wax medium brings luminous layers of color and mystery to abstract and landscape paintings. Like archeologists in paint, students will learn layering and texturing techniques to create magical colors and tones.

Advanced Tools & Techniques in Oil & Cold wax offers those already comfortable with the medium to explore texture, mark-making, layering, reduction, masking, and many more tools in the medium. All participants will receive a 30-page handout on working in oil and cold wax.

Lynne Wintermute has a degree in Fine Arts from Linfield College and continued with graduate studies at Pacific Northwest College of Arts. She is represented by Dragonfire Gallery in Cannon Beach, Oregon. She has had many solo and group shows throughout the Northwest. As a teaching artist, she teaches a variety of workshops in eight venues and private and group lessons in her Neskowin Studio. Lynne says,“she is inspired by Oregon’s beaches, forests, rivers, and constantly changing sky.”
