    In this demo, Laurinda will create a painting loosely based from one of her photo references. During this presentation she will show her process and mark making, and discuss ideas about capturing the sense of place she feels from the scene, the movement in and around the scene, as well as her under painting methods. She works quickly reacting to what is happening on her surface as opposed to following the details in the reference and often times lets go of the reference all together.

    Cuong will use the Verdaccio method (The green foundation) as a foundation for his demonstration, profile of a woman. The green layer is effective because it helps to balance the subsequent layers of warmer colors. Green and red are complementary colors, at opposite sides of the color wheel, so their juxtaposition creates a more vibrant effect. The hint of green visible below the surface also suggests the veins just below the skin. For this demonstration, you'll see step-by-step of how to create realistic skin tones using my technique. He will show the layering process for the drawing, listing the colors used in each layer to gradually build a realistic result.

    In this studio lab presentation, we will focus on encaustic as a remarkable painting medium. Following a historic overview of encaustic, you will be introduced to current approaches to studio setup, tools and health and safety. Often encaustic is looked to for its exceptional mixed media, printmaking, photography transfer, sculpting, or casting qualities - which are undeniable. However in this presentation, the focus will be on the opulence of bees wax encaustic paint. Encaustic’s unique methods of how the paint is applied will be featured, the importance of heat and encaustic medium for mixing of color, how it is fused with heat for adhesion, extended out, and textured. Artists working in any painting media will find this workshop an exciting opportunity to grow their visual vocabulary with wax.

Along with the basics of the application, Shane will demonstrate how to navigate the Procreate app interface and how it can be a useful tool for artists - beyond making digital art pieces. Procreate can be used for sketching, making mock ups, or working out painting compositions and manipulating reference photos, among other uses.
