“As an oil painter I have never used cold wax. I found Andrea Wedell's  course Abstracting Landscape in Oil and Cold Wax to be very informative. I have worked with oil paints for years but I never used cold wax. In this course, Andrea educates you on the basics and guides you through the process. I have gone back through the course several times to make sure I did not miss a thing. I highly recommend this short course for annyone that is a beginner or experienced painter."
