MAR.16.16: Garage Door Studio Step-by-Step Photo Encaustic Evening with Penny Treese

Ashley-mom-painting1-lrDo you have a favorite photo of your grandparent, parent, child or even a pet that deserves to be featured as a fine art painting?

In this session, bring a print-out of a treasured photo and learn to enhance it with wax, pigment, pastels or add heavy texture and embed personal elements like lace, jewelry, handwritten notes…wherever your photo needs to come alive.

See instructions for printing size and paper (inexpensive ink jet). Feel free to bring a print of an Internet image-it doesn’t have to be shot by you. Even magazine photos will do! Penny will also have photos from which to choose and use.

PHOTO-ENCAUSTIC SUPPLY/PHOTO LIST:
Please print your photos on inexpensive, ink jet paper, NOT GLOSSY PHOTO PAPER.
The wax absorbs into the porous ink jet paper much better than glossy, or laser paper.

Bring prints of your photos at letter size 8.5×11” or smaller.

Course Description

Pre-Requisite – An Intro to Encaustic workshop and an Advanced Encaustic workshop. Contact instructor, Penny Treese, at pennytreese@comcast.net for questions about requirements if necessary.

Bursts of vibrant color created with a blowtorch and pigmented wax are as mesmerizing to create as they are to gaze upon in the final painting. Learn to create delicate marks with various sized brushes, dipped in wax and feathered over rich background hues resulting in blooms and bursts that resemble jellyfish, flowers or the Aurora Borealis.

Students will start by creating luscious palettes by combining appropriate proportions of oil pigment to wax to elicit translucent to opaque colors. They’ll paint on small surfaces, and practice managing composition before moving to larger substrates and learning repetition of mark making and “sizing up” while maintaining the essence of the happy accidents created on smaller pieces.

Students will leave with an 18×18″ painting and smaller studies/masterpieces, resembling the beginnings of a body of work they will be proud to grow and show.

“Hues you might find in an angel’s halo – magical, bright and hopeful.”

Themes of stillness, presence and reflection are revealed throughout Penny Treese’s paintings. The interplay of molten unbleached beeswax and vivid pigment beget images of land and sea, sea and sky. Using an iron to apply heat and delicate pressure, Treese transforms wax into warm waves of color flowing across wood or paper. Golds fade, blues burst, pinks evoke. Treese’s intentional “spot welds” are smudges of memory, inklings of dreams, revealing dapples, dimples and wrinkles that birth a sun, moon, cloud or ethereal dragons and angels. Even as Treese envisions the rich soil and pastures of her Midwestern roots, by meticulously manipulating wax and paint, the land becomes fluid – echoing life’s constant ebbs and flows. And yet, like the underlying layers of wax and pigment in each painting, there is a foundational hope. A hope expressed in the truth that circumstances cannot touch true peace, that indeed “grace is sufficient.”—Penny Treese
