In this two-day oil and cold wax workshop we will be using floral and garden images for creating a series of semi-abstracted and abstracted paintings in oil and cold wax. Some of these paintings will be strictly from our imaginations and some will be based on photo images of flowers and gardens.  We will be using non-traditional painting tools along with a palette knife to create this series of paintings.

On the first day we will discuss abstract paintings and Addren will introduce you to the tools she uses with oil and cold wax.  There will be a short demonstration and then you will be free to create a series of small paintings on Arches Oil Paper with Addren’s help as needed.  We will also prep the cradled panels we will be using on the second day.

On the second day we will work on ultra-smooth cradled panels and take what we learned on day one a little further.  You will be creating two small pieces with one or two flowers and a larger piece that will have multiple flowers.




Workshop Teacher

  • Addren Doss

    “For me, plein air painting is about recording my emotional reaction to a specific place at a specific time of day.  The studio painting that may come from that experience is an extension of the intense feelings and reactions I had when painting outside.” — Addren Doss

    The goal of Addren Doss is to engage viewers emotionally by creating representational light filled paintings with intense colors and strong value patterns.  Her oil and pastel paintings are filled with bold brush and knife work, and passages of pure clean color.  One viewer recently said, “I feel a part of the landscape, the sun on my face, and the wind in my hair when looking at your paintings.”  Another said “I feel like I can reach out and touch your animals”.

    Addren spent the first twenty years of her art career as a graphic designer doing corporate and freelance work.  In 1990 she decided to follow her true passion, and began her career as a painter.  Over the years she has studied with many noted American artists.  Now she feels the need and responsibility to share what she has learned by teaching classes and workshops in oil and pastel, which she has been doing for over 12 years.

    Addren is a Master Signature Member of Women Artists of the West, Founding and Charter Member of the Piedmont Outdoor Painting Society, and member of the Pastel Society of North Carolina.  She is represented by O’Brien Gallery in Greensboro, North Carolina.  Her work can be found in many private and corporate collections across the country and internationally.  She and her husband live in Greensboro, North Carolina.
