rebecca shavulsky private workshop
the top three are encaustic pieces that rebecca completed in previous workshops, rebecca practicing the branding technique, a piece she completed during this workshop
my december private workshop was with the delightful and talented rebecca shavulsky. rebecca is an awesome portrait photographer and has also done a lot of encaustic painting prior to this workshop. i wanted to show her some alternatives to what she may have learned in other encaustic workshops, so we branded, rust printed, worked with horsehair and powdered graphite in addition to other encaustic fun-ness. i was most impressed with how loose rebecca could work-she didn't get hung up on the way the piece was going to turn out and yet she turned out the most interesting compositions that had a language all their own. see her equally interesting and amazing photography work here.
