Art Description

Painting: Oil, oil pastel, Wax, Paper on Paper.

Oil pastels and cold wax on oil paper | 2019

In this series I'm exploring the concept of Silence. Living in a busy city like Barcelona, makes it almost impossible to find moments for enjoying silence. Silence is much more than the absence of noise. Silence is an opportunity to initiate a trip to your deepest self, a way of understanding your own nature.

Oil pastel is a beautiful technique I'm learning on the go. On these works, I'm also using cold wax to provide a thin layer of color that combines perfectly with the oil.

Oil pastels never dry, they just become hard over time. Oil gets absorbed by the fibers of the paper leaving a layer of pigment with less oil.

The paper I used in these ones is specific for oil, which means that oil will absorb better than on other regular papers.

For shipping I will ensure the painting is properly packed, but bear in mind that the cover paper may stick to the surface of the painting. Just remove it carefully :)

For long term conservation, frame your painting behind a glass.
