Introduction to Oil and Cold Wax

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 discover and 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.

This workshop introduces the medium and includes instruction on color theory and composition. It provides the basics from underpainting and application of wax layers to simple mark-making and textures. 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.”

Note: This introductory course is the first of two workshops on offer with Wintermute. It is followed on October 28-29 by an advanced course that focuses on texture, mark-making, layering, reduction, masking, and more tools for students already comfortable with oil and cold wax medium. These are stand-alone workshops.
