VOMA – The Virtual Online Museum of Art

The Virtual Online Museum of Art (VOMA) is the world’s first virtual museum of it’s kind. It presents exquisitely curated exhibitions featuring seminal works on loan from major institutions around the world, alongside those by our most celebrated contemporary artists.

It is a totally free, fully immersive museum that anyone, anywhere in the world can visit. VOMA is more than just another online viewing room or digitization of something that exists in the physical world. It is a gorgeous amalgamation of considered curation, visionary architecture, game design, CGI, and global community interactivity. It is a digital institution that’s capable of showcasing art in ways audiences have not had the chance to experience before.

Velasquez Medium and Oleogel

I am constantly looking for, and I am open to, ways of improving my experience of painting. I’m curious about techniques and tools that other artists use and I adopt things that I see and think I can use sometimes.

This time I am giving Velasquez Medium and Oleogel a try. I first learned about these products from Ryan Delgado, a wonderful painter whose YouTube channel is informative as well as entertaining. Check out his youTube channel for some useful instruction on oil painting and palette best practices.

I’m looking forward to getting to know these products which, by the way, are made by Natural Pigments of Willits, CA. Here’s a link to their website:
