I have taken The Encaustic Minimalist with Daniella Woolf online and in person. Regardless of your medium of choice, Daniella is an exceptional teacher with so much to share -- creating with a limited colour palette, small substrates, and simple tools - all adding up to dynamic paintings with much visual interest.
I have also taken Making Doll Faces with Patti Culea and it is so insightful to watch a master craftsperson at work. Her videos helped elevate my game when it came to mapping out cloth doll faces and helping them look more realistic.
I am currently working on a series of doll portraits in both encaustic and mixed media. Dolls are my passion and I love to paint them. This is Tulip Heart (image below) and she is a frequent star in my doll photoshoots.
I was glad to have had taken one of Patti's workshops prior to working on this painting as I feel her instruction helped me get the eyes right.
I simply love the luminescence of Tulip’s eyes that bring this inanimate object to life. This is my first cold wax portrait and was created during a workshop with Lora Murphy. Tulip Heart was recently park of a group exhibition, curated by Murphy, of encaustic and cold wax in Denmark.
Take your soy wax to the next level with this wonderful workshop featuring Susan Purney Mark.
Drawing, sculpting, shaping, painting -- it's all about the doll's face -- and the eyes! For doll makers, illustrators, and mixed media!
