Luminosity, Lines and Transparency in Encaustic

with Lynda Ray at Ah Haa School of Art, Telluride, CO
Starting & Expanding Your Skills…/encaustic-painting-starting-expandi…/
August 14 – 16, 2018
Tuesday – Thursday
10:00am – 4:00pm
This workshop is for students who are new to encaustic and for those who want to expand theirskills and explore more possibilities with paint.
The hot wax layering process of encaustic painting produces luminous surfaces and textures. After learning surface preparation and some background information, participants in this three-day workshop will experience the process of applying layers of transparent colors, imprinting and casting with botanical materials, incorporating image transfers, and working with stencils and textures.
Step-by-step demonstrations will be followed by plenty of time to work and improvise throughout the days. Participants will emerge with a range of skills to deepen the direction of their ongoing work and confidence to create paintings incorporating new skills.
Although Lynda works in a nonrepresentational style, she finds encaustic to be a versatile medium for all types of work. Understanding the properties of encaustic is the first step to incorporating it into your own work. Wherever you are with your art, Lynda will take you to the next level.
( Students must purchase some required materials.)

Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, is an ancient painting method that combines pigment, molten beeswax, and resin. Finished pieces can appear smooth, shiny, or textured as well as three-dimensional. This makes the medium ideal for working abstractly or in a representational style. In this workshop, you’ll begin to explore melting and fusing the wax, making clean lines and edges, and methods of collage and texture.
For people who have some experience, come back and get a refresher or continue to delve in more deeply to ongoing projects.  This could also be an opportunity to explore new inspiration.
