This is an introduction to the possibilities of painting with R&F pigment sticks. Pigment sticks are oil paint combined with wax to hold together into a stick form. They can be used in a spontaneous way right on a surface without the need for brushes. Lisa will demonstrate combining them with oil paint, cold wax and also integrating other drawing materials into the process. Layering, mono printing and mark making will be covered along with the use of tools such as scrapers and brayers. Through various exercises students will experiment with materials and create 10-20 small scale studies onboard and paper. (No encaustic included)

An additional materials fee will be due before the workshop.
