Oil and Cold Wax Landscape with Laura Culic

posted in: Past Workshops 0

Workshop #1 – March 15 to 17, 2019 at Kensington Art Supply
Workshop #2 – March 13 to 14, 2019 at Inglewood Art Supply

Learn how to “paint in the moment” and work with oil and cold wax. Experience how cold wax gives oil paint a stiffer, more buttery body which lends itself in creating texture and depth. Use various tools, such as squeegees, credit cards, palette knives, and brayers to build up layers, and scrape back into your work to reveal underlying imagery in surprising and exciting ways. Focus on exploring the cold wax medium, and learn to loosen up and let chance and serendipity influence your work. Use your “mistakes” to contribute to the interest, depth and sense of history in a piece. Laura will offer plenty of one-on-one instruction, insightful and constructive critique and positive encouragement. Participants are encouraged to work on several pieces at once, to allow a true sense of play and experimentation to pervade.

About Laura Culic

Award winning painter Laura Culic works in beeswax, dry pigments and oil paint. Laura’s work is available at her studio gallery, Black Spruce Art Works, located in Maynooth ON. Laura’s work resides in many corporate, private and government collections. She is an elected member of the Ontario Society of Artists, and a recipient of an Ontario Arts Council grant.
My paintings are my response to my deep and abiding love of the the wild places of Ontario. I am motivated to paint images, whether representational or abstract, which reflect my profound sense of connection to the rocky and wild landscape in which I live and which seems to inhabit me. My images are the product of many meditative hours spent in this harshly beautiful environment: hiking, paddling, observing, absorbing and just being.
