Linda Lenart McNulty-Luminous Encaustics
So often the simple act of laying down a lively brushstroke is overlooked in our complex paintings, so it’s nice to get back to basics and create strokes and surface areas full of intention and energy. Layering color is its own art and in this workshop I will show you how to choose beautiful color palettes, and take a look at different approaches to color layering and what works for you. We will then scratch and dig into our surfaces, as sgraffito, intaglio and intarsia.
Materials Fee $45 payable to instructor at beginning of class includes:
1. 3 wood painting boards (cradle boards are nice!), 6”x6” or 8”x8” or smaller - get dimensions you like, not to big! If you want to go tinier, you can double up on the amount of boards. Encaustic paintings are thick with many layers, so you don’t need as much surface area.
1. If you own a small torch, please bring it as we will be sharing. Just empty it before placing it in your luggage, and put a note on it that says it’s empty.
