Contemporary portraiture in Encaustic with Instructor Lora Murphy
A 3 Special Day Workshop - early June 2017 dates and cost to be announced soon!
Would you love to learn portrait painting with the use of encaustic paint?
This workshop will take the mystery out of portraiture, but not the Magic! Lora’s step by step instruction will show you how to approach a portrait or figure, from the initial drawing to the final highlight. Working vertically on a wood panel, she will teach you how to create luminous skin tones, how to accurately draw the head, how to interpret the light, halftone and shadow of the flesh, and how to paint the features with encaustic paint. She will also demonstrate the use of water based encaustic paint as one of the final steps in a portrait, creating very expressive passages and transitions.
