This workshop is about coming closer to what you as an artist want to say: Not my voice, but yours. I will help you find the tools and techniques you need to express yourself, and to create a series of paintings that reflect your creative self. How do you come to that point of recognition? Coming to it, how do you express it..what does the painting look like?
This workshop is open to artists with encaustic experience, or artists new to encaustic who work in other mediums.
Koment, series of panels 14" x14", encaustic on panels
Each student will work on a group of paintings that will work together, that can be exhibited or seen as a series. That inform and enhance each other. We will work on a series of panels from 12” to 24”, depending on what size best suits you.
It isn’t about techniques as an end, but at technique as a means toward what you want to achieve. However, we will also review or introduce a variety of techniques. We will talk about color, about transparency, layering, line, collage and the inclusion of photographic imagery, mark making and the small pour. and a variety of tools of expression..
