Description
Once you’ve experienced the Zen of loosing yourself in creating luscious paintings with pigmented wax, you’ll likely want to continue your journey by learning more advanced techniques – or merely continue your initial delicious practice. Join Penny Treese in her intermediate to advanced encaustic painting workshop and elevate your work to new dimensions. This workshop is designed to introduce a variety of new techniques, as well as dialoguing about the content of paintings. Moving beyond technique, we will delve into what inspires each artist, guiding them into creating successful works of encaustic art.
Techniques explored: Applying translucent to opaque wax in a range of hues and tones to create layers, scraping to reveal, accretion texture, embedding/embossing objects, dripping and oil stick rubs, and creating a glass-like to raised textural surfaces and more.
SOME EXPERIENCE REQUIRED: Intro to Photo-Encaustic Painting suggested.
Fee of $40 PAYABLE TO THE INSTRUCTOR at the time of the workshop.

ARTZ16919 |Monday September 19th, 10:30am – 2:30pm

Description
Photography can be transformed with the addition of natural beeswax. Enhance your photographs by distressing prints or by adding smooth or highly textured surfaces, depending on the content and concept of the image. Learn how layering, tearing or cutting your photo then reassembling, and applying washes can create a psychological depth to carefully chosen images. During a pre-workshop “image planning” session with the Penny via email or phone, your favorite photos, (whether copied/printed from a family album, or from your iPhone on the beach) will be curated with Penny Treese to plan out how the encaustic process may enhance each of your works’ visual narrative

Encaustic Painting: Ironing on Paper with Penny Treese

Encaustic Painting: Ironing on Paper with Penny Treese

REGISTER HEREpenny-ironing

Ironing on paper or panel as an encaustic wax painting technique results in a unique and beautiful experience for the artist and the viewer. Surfaces can be created to emulate coral-thick and textural, or thin transparent layers of color that seem to pulsate and move before the eyes of the beholder. In this encaustic workshop, learn the method of ironing wax to develop what Penny calls, “Selfscapes,” representations of sky, sea, ground, or simple yet stunning abstract fields of luscious color. You will leave this workshop with several encaustic wax paintings on paper or wooden substrates.

 

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED.

Materials are included in the Materials Kit Fee of $30 PAYABLE TO THE INSTRUCTOR at the time of the workshop via cash or check.
