Description

This workshop is designed for both painters and photographers interested in gaining new skills and pushing the boundaries of their studio practice through the combination of encaustic, collage, and photography. Demonstrations introduce you to the basics of encaustic painting and digital printing, while you will explore ways to further alter your photographic images through a series of markings and underpainting combined with monochromatic imagery that borrows from the look and feel of traditional cyano-types. You will focus on incorporating embedded photo prints on thin papers such as tissue and Japanese papers, creating ethereal and richly detailed works. You will start off with steps for creating and isolating images in photoshop to get the look and feel of cyano-types, and then move on to building up underpaintings.
