I am new here and have been making artwork for only a few years, so please bear with me.
I do very detailed dry pastel/charcoal drawings on paper, which I (sometimes) spray w/a fixative, and then mat and frame under a glass frame.
I got into oil painting lately and am thrilled and inspired by linseed oil glazes.
I was thinking of possibly combining an intricate dry pastel/charcoal drawings on canvas, instead of paper ( would this work? do you have any information on this??), with an oil glaze over it.
I understand that dry material is hard to mix w/oil and will smudge if I apply anything with a brush over a dry medium drawing..so any ideas?
I thought, if I spray enough fixative, a few layers over a few days..maybe the dry powder will be more resilient?
Also..I would be willing to experment w/acrylic glazes, if you think that this would work better?
This glazes, I thought, could also eliminate the need for a glass frame..
Do you think this is attainable? Any thoughts on longevity and reaction of materials? Any similar possibilities and/or ideas?
I guess, I'll just need to experiment, but was wondering if anyone has tried this.
I know I am trying to defeat some laws of physics, but I am just so excited about this possibility!
Thanks in advance for your help and expertise!
