Cold Wax Painting Medium
Oil Painting on paper.
More in-depth background to oil painting on paper as it relates to painting with
Cold Wax and oil paint.
| V and A museum abstract review -
......in his letter of 5 January 1825 (Beckett, VI, p.189) Constable writes:
From research done by conservators, it is known that Constable used glazes (mixed translucent oil paint) in his work, these is little of his impasto style showing here, very painterly, like his watercolours.
From V and A - "It is well known that Constable often painted on thin homemade card (made from two or three pieces of paper glued and pressed together).
These two examples indicate that paper is an excellent surface for Cold Wax and oil paint, over two hundred years old - will today's 'gesso's and acrylic's' look this good after that length of time - I think not.
