Every once in awhile I like to step away from the body of work I'm currently making, to mix it up, experiment, try new materials and just see what might come up. Its really important to me to try and stay fresh, and push outside any comfort zone that might have crept in.
So currently I'm stepping away from the oil and fabric on canvas paintings I've been making for the Adagio series, and trying out some new things. I've started to incorporate cold wax medium into oil paint and I'm really liking the feel and look of it. The paint is much thicker and has a nice matte finish to it. I've been putting a lot more paint on the panels, scrapping off, gouging, troweling it on etc, and just trying to see where it might lead. Here is a first little study with the new medium.
