This workshop will teach you how to blend modern digital photography practices with the ancient art of encaustic painting. Leah will demonstrate a photo shoot using a live model and teach you how to create a scene that is beautiful and will be the basis of your photo encaustic paintings. We will discuss editing techniques in Photoshop including black and white filters that will make your digital work look like film. and print our photographs using Hahnemuhle fine art papers — the perfect durable paper for your encaustic paintings. Learn how to mount your photo prints to a sturdy wood substrate for a presentation that doesn’t require framing. We will use a variety of techniques and painting layers with both bleached beeswax, traditional encaustic (pigmented wax), and R&F pigment sticks.
