If you can get to Portland on July 19th you have the opportunity to take a one day workshop focusing on his painting techniques with local artist Jesse Reno. (I'll be there!) He is a brilliant creator with an amazing body of work. Contact Nikki Blackwood at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We are so lucky that he has agreed to teach right here in River City!
Yesterday I painted 4 more encaustics on wood. These are all wax, no underpainting.
The challenge I set for myself was to use the carbon paper technique (modified) that Natasia demonstrated at the last IEA meeting.
I found an ancient piece of carbon paper that I used for the black lines. I love how they sink into the wax when you fuse them.
Today it's back to abstracts I think. With the wax I never know what's going to happen until it happens. I just want to try as many different things as I can think of. One must be fearless in the studio and laugh at the voices that say negative things.
