Painting: Oil, oil pastel, Paper, Wax 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.
