Five Days: JULY 11-15, 2016
Take a whole week to expand your painting horizons. This will be an opportunity to work at a larger scale,and to enhance your work with a variety of new techniques. Individual instruction and criticism will help you move your encaustic painting to a new level.
For people with encaustic experience it will be an opportunity to take your into a new dimension. Many people stay at a certain level with their encaustic painting because they see working at a larger scale, or changing their approach, as intimidating. It does present certain challenges,but when you understand how to overcome them, it can be a richly rewarding experience.
This workshop will allow you to work up to 24" x 24". It will address all aspects of working larger, from the planning and drawing stages, through preparation of the surface; understanding temperature control and how it facilitates working larger, handling color and glazing, as well as special effects, and finishing. A number of new techniques will be presented: use of dry pigment and oil paint on incised line, mixed media approaches, basic color and glaze theory, creating texture and working with photo and other media.
