This past Tuesday, I finally got the chance to take the Encaustic Monotype Workshop taught by Paula Roland! Although this short visual summary doesn't do the class justice, I hope it will suffice.
Wax going down on the hot plate (custom built Encaustic Monotype tables to draw and paint on in wax).
Paula (the teacher, not me) pulling off a print.
A collaborative print done by Sally Ann and myself.
This is one that I had done. I spent the class time exploring how each color of wax behaved. Each color acted differently because of the nature of the pigment that was in it. I was surprised about how you can draw with this medium. It is quite lovely to draw with! Kind of like working with an oil pastel and charcoal stick at the same time!
Another classmate's work. Her name is Kai but she did not give me a website to link to.
This is Sally Ann who was my collaboration partner! We had fun working together-a good match, as they say.
