Description of the week end immersion into encaustic painting
Are you art enthusiast wanting to discover a new versatile painting process in an intimate studio setting and a beautiful location? Do you want to recharge your creative batteries and create beautiful atmospheric artwork and embellish them using a wide range of techniques in a relax and inspiring environment?
I invite you to spend the week-end in the stunningly beautiful world class vista which is Connemara and discover the art of encaustic painting, an ancient painting process using molten beeswax, resins and natural pigments.
Imagine being surrounded by the Sléibhte Mhám Toirc, the rugged beauty of the Inagh Valley, where the light, clouds and mist fight for dominance and offers an amazing palette in full display.
in the summer, the mountains would change from grey to dazzling white and then glow golden orange with the descending sun. As storm passes, the sky, which was once black tuns blue, the hills from orange, brown, red and green. The countryside sparkle and everything contribute: The sky, the hills, lakes and rivers, stone walls and paddocks.
This two day workshop in Recess, right in the heart of Connemara, with views of lakes and forest, is the perfect opportunity to take two days for yourself, to focus on your work, and take it to the next level. During the workshops, participants will be exposed to basic, intermediate and advanced techniques in working with encaustic medium. Whether you come with a project in mind or a blank canvas, you will find support and input, from like minded people, while being given all the skills you need for creative growth. Allow the light filled ruggedness of Connemara to inspire and generates new visions, while taking the opportunity to meet fellow artists.
We will share what inspire us and you will be shown you different ways to translate it into your artworks.
Soak in the landscape, refresh and create!
