Wonderful video & very pleasant delivery - interesting to hear Pierre's use of cold wax. It's an exceptional event when one can watch an artist work & hear his technique and rational of/for this techniques. Thank you Pierre! Please continue to make more videos! Wish i'd been at the Opus shop when you were painting and filming. I've used cold wax for a while & will now adapt my use to incorporate some of Pierre's info. Wholly agree on the use of board!
