A comprehensive three-day workshop that will take you through the process of creating a stylized, Fashion Plate Portrait with a variety of mixed media. We’ll start with techniques for creating an encaustic effect ephemera base layer, then we will work on transferring your reference photo with graphite transfer paper as a sketch, drawing over that sketch with black pastel to create bold line work. I’ll guide you through which areas of your composition to paint for collage, and which to leave as pastel. Next, you’ll learn how to create your own collage papers in a full range of values, colors, and patterns. Once you’ve made your own paper palette, I’ll guide you through tearing and applying it overtop of certain areas of your underpainting. We’ll also discuss Stabilo Woodies and Posca Markers...Combine all these techniques to create an amazing Fashion Plate Portrait that you will be proud to call your own!
