Encaustic mixed media demo on Sunday, September 21, from 1-3 pm

Hi, everyone!

If you’d like to visit my studio and hear about my encaustic techniques, my friend Linda Wein and I are doing a demo for the St. Louis WaxCentric Meetup group on Sunday, September 21, from 1-3 pm. For more information and to RSVP, please visit the Meetup event page: http://www.meetup.com/WaxCentric/events/205227612/?a=ea1_grp&rv=ea1&_af_eid=205227612&_af=event

The demo will be at the Fontbonne University grad studios (1300 Strassner Blvd., 63144 – parking details on event page) in the central atrium space. It would be great to see you, if you can make it! Don’t forget to RSVP so we know how many folks are coming!

Value layers

The last couple of classes, we’ve begun modeling with light and dark values added to the local color to create more depth. So far, I’ve worked on the red cloth with both light and dark and am currently working on the darker cloth. Most of the dark cloth is in shadow, so I won’t be adding much light.
