Oil & Cold Wax Demo

Discover the beauty and possibilities of oil and cold wax medium, including the ability to create a variety of textures, spontaneous and intuitive mark-making, and layering for translucency and depth.

  • Layering to create visual depth, and to conceal and reveal surfaces
  • Q&A

Caroline Dahlmanns strives to capture the essence of her subjects with sensual texture, balancing representation with an abstract visual vocabulary. Her inspiration comes from all over: the beauty of a particular gesture, luminous light, the feel and energy of a tender encounter with another and the physical beauty of her surrounding landscapes. Most of all, she strives to communicate the essential energy of a moment. Her works are in private collections in North America, Europe, and Asia, and she loves to share her joy for art through teaching.
