Finally got the 7 foot x 4 foot paper gridded properly & the initial outline of the figure sketched on. Will work on it more Monday night to double-check the proportions and begin trying to find the bone structures within the form.
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!
