Oil Painting

Two oil paintings based on the previous sketches using Wax medium to create an impasto effect. The wax medium allows the paint to be spread on thicker and unless used in overly large quantities does not effect the colour produced. The problem i found with it is the wax needs to be mixed completely or the surface of the painting can become grainy. In addition to this the wax medium is better to use while it is heated slightly.
