TECHNIQUES in ADVANCED PHOTO-ENCAUSTIC PAINTING with Penny Treese
Thursday, March 9, 10:30-4:30
Learn several of Penny’s unique techniques and secrets in manipulating images to create photo-encaustic paintings. Add texture to your photos by distressing with water, wine, found objects, steel wool, natural pigments and more. Explore printing and manipulating photos on translucent papers like mulberry, tissue, and other fine art papers. Photos printed on Japanese papers then saturated with natural beeswax and fused, create luminous results to enhance your work’s visual narrative. Learn how layering photos, tearing or cutting your photo then reassembling, and applying washes can create a psychological depth to your carefully chosen photographs. Class includes a pre-workshop “image planning” session with Penny via email or phone. Penny will guide you through choosing the best photos for this medium and unique workshop.
