Also I taught for two days this week and could forget all the problems the robbery created. I love sharing encaustic techniques with eager participants in the workshops. A double delight is getting to meet people I would not have met isolated in my studio. See my workshop blog: http://ezshwan.blogspot.mx/
Here is a new painting I have been working on. I know what I want to create, but I have to struggle with my habit of loving to paint portratis and not get picky with these faces. Off and on I have worked on this for 5 days. It is not finished and I may get to work on it a bit more before I leave for the Yucatan next week.
|Day one. Acrylic washes|
|day two laying our patterns in oil|
|day three, more placement|
|Day four. I started painting with my hands to soften the figures|
|Finally getting the softness that I am seeking|
|oil sticks and more painting with a gloved hand.|
