CONTEMPORARY PORTRAITURE IN ENCAUSTIC
Many people would like to try Portraiture and/or Figurative painting in Encaustic but are unsure of where to start and how to proceed . This Workshop will take the mystery out of it .(But not the Magic!!). My step by step instruction , will show you how to approach a portrait or figure ,from the initial drawing to the final highlight. Working vertically on either canvas or panel , I will demonstrate how to use the hot palette to create luminous skin tones , how to accurately draw the head , how to interpret the light, halftone and shadow and how to paint the features. I will demonstrate the use of water based encaustic paint as one of the final steps in a portrait ,creating very expressive passages and transitions .I will discuss the specific requirements for working with encaustic on canvas .
“We could not learn to read and write unless we learned the letters of the alphabet . The same principle applies to painting : unless you have knowledge of tools , materials and their functions, you will find it difficult to express your feelings”. These Workshops will give you the confidence to try !
