Learning Curves, they do take time and effort. I found my way into working with oils and cold wax a few months ago and have been focusing all my studio time and efforts in learning how to work with this new to me medium. From techniques, to texture making to colour combos and surfaces, I'm feeling my way along and finding a resonance in my soul.
I love how malleable the wax and oils are, love the longer cure times that allow me to blend and meld and build texture, contrasts and mark making, to peel back layers that hint at what came before. The work echos how I see life, there is always so much more than what we see on the surface, and it takes time and deliberate care to discover what lies below.
My acrylics lie dormant for now, I don't know that I will ever return to them...
