I enjoy creating abstracted versions of my favorite landscapes using encaustic and other painting media, and I'd love for you to experience it too!
In this one and a half day class I'll show you how I combine encaustic paint with many other materials including watercolor, wax crayons, pigment sticks and more to create luminous landscapes.
Saturday will be dedicated to creating under paintings on our panels before we start waxing. We'll use watercolor in this class, but I'll discuss other materials and methods for you to experiment with at home. On Sunday we'll continue the process by adding other media, especially encaustic paint and medium.
Students will be asked to bring a couple of reference photos for inspiration, just to give you a starting point. Realism isn't our goal, it's more to convey a sense of place.
We'll use whatever media we need to create your vision, and working in small groups in my studio makes that possible. We might need pastels, graphite, artist crayons or pigment sticks to achieve a certain look, so we'll discuss whatever methods and media that make sense for your painting.
This intermediate class is for those already comfortable working with wax. If you need to learn the basics first, please join us in my Encaustic & Collage or Intro to Encaustic Painting class.
All supplies will be provided and most students leave class with 1-2 finished projects. Confirmation, directions to my studio and additional information will be emailed to each student upon registration. Space is limited to 6 students so classes fill quickly.
