Encaustic: Layers, Translucency, and See-Throughs
This workshop will enable students to achieve greater clarity and translucency in their encaustic paintings. We’ll focus on building paintings from the ground up, covering what can be done directly on the substrate, between the layers of medium, and on the surface. We’ll discuss opaque and translucent color, how to create beautiful glazes, and working with various drawing materials: ink, charcoal, PanPastel, oil pastel, pencil, graphite and Pigment Sticks. Mark-making and writing exercises will help each student deepen their connection to their work. All levels.
