Impressionistic Fundamentals: The Encaustic Mono-Print College


THIS WORKSHOP IS SOLD OUT.  If you would like to be placed on a wait list please call the office at 250-770-7668.

This hands-on workshop with Tracy Proctor will consist of three intensive days of encaustic impressionism.  Planning composition and colour studies, students will start with a good value drawing on a large birch panel.  Students will learn to create encaustic mono-prints to add layers of colour and rhythm in their painting.   Layers are the key to making a painting come alive while still revealing a vibrant under-painting.  Learn how divisionism, Non-finito and the power of a personal brushstroke are the keys to an impressionistic painting. 

Bonus demo: Learn how your computer can assist in your planning, value and colour composition.

Supplies included as noted: students are encouraged to work on one large piece and complete 15-20 Mono-prints.   Prior experience in basic encaustic painting is a requirement
