vol / full2-Daagse Workshop met Janise Yntema

Explore the Nuance of Landscape in Encaustic Wax

Explore the nuance of Landscape in this two-day workshop focusing on the multi-faceted qualities of encaustic wax. Landscape is one of the most versatile and personal of painting genres and this course will cover a wide variety of techniques and approaches in guiding students to discover and develop their own unique aesthetic practice.

We will investigate what can designate landscape: from the positions of pure colour, the drawn and inscribed line to the textural, to include the incorporation of drawing, digital media, collage and mixed media.   Composition, perspective, and the psychology of the horizon will be explored as well as how colour frames the translucency of light. An additive/reductive approach is encouraged. Students will learn to expand their encaustic practice with the incorporation of paint sticks.

All levels are welcome, but basic encaustic knowledge is required.

This workshop will be partly sponsored
