— V.P Artist

It's been an age since I felt so moved by a fellow artist. Tonja's gallery is multi-dimensional, an emotive visual dialogue sweeping you away into it's lush rich colour and texture dancing across the canvas. 

So painterly and boundless yet superb attention to classical figurative detail, harmoniously captured in centre stage with piercing soulful personality emanating from the portraits featured. 

Complete compositions yet retaining the vibrance of sketched studies. Inspiring this fellow artist to muse again.

ABSTRACTION TO REALISM: OIL & COLD WAX. Have you considered combining oil paint and cold wax? The addition of cold wax medium into oil paints not only allows you to create beautiful texture while speeding up the dry time of oils, but is a great solution for oil painters who enjoy working realistically while allowing expressive and abstracted elements to be incorporated into the painting. You need not be an experienced oil painter, but a basic understanding of working in oils is important.
