This 3 hour VIRTUAL workshop will focus on combining drawing tools with cold wax and oil techniques. Most drawing elements will be applied to the surface first with successive transparent layers of wax and oil paint going over these under-drawings. Scrapers and other tools can remove layers while oil color crayons can work back into the wet surface. The underlying theme is Color and Abstract Painting with strong attention placed on layering using all the available tools.

**This is a continuation of the Wabi Sabi I workshop. We strongly advise taking Wabi Sabi I before signing up for Wabi Sabi II to ensure that you have the proper knowledge and materials going into this workshop.**

This 2 hour VIRTUAL workshop will provide tips and techniques for people who don’t know where to begin and feel they don’t have enough time or space to create art. These skills will translate from daily practice at home to travel sketching while on vacation. Learning to create a daily sketchbook practice can slow things down and bring a new appreciation to your surroundings, both near and far. The workshop will work in a round-robin fashion on four images, working first to build the composition in each image, then blocking in colors to final details.
