Brushwork is important to one's own expression. It brings life to a painting. Although it is only one of the many parts to bringing a painting together, we will focus on the many ways to include dynamic brushwork to a finished artwork. We will start with exercises using the brush and other "tools" on day one, followed by a demonstration after lunch. On day two you will paint in a whole new way, starting with a wash of vibrant color and building to a textural finish that will change the way you paint!
- Some painting experience is suggested. Class Supply List will be provided.
- Call Randy if you'd like to talk more about this workshop....

It is with great pleasure and honor to welcome Francisco Benitez, internationally known master artist, back to Sacramento where he will hold a 3-day Encaustic Workshop at the Patris Studio and Art Gallery in Oak Park.
Francisco, who resides in both Europe and New Mexico, did his first encaustic painting in the fall of 2005, after years of being fascinated with the medium, but never daring to paint figuratively in it. In the 1990’s, when he lived in France, he discovered a book called the Mysterious Fayum Portraits, by Euphrosyne Doxiadis. He was mesmerized by these ancient portraits,and began experimenting with the ancient tools, called “cauteria”, and the four-color palette of the ancient Greeks.
Encaustic is a particularly challenging, yet beautiful medium, in which to paint and is one of the most permanent mediums known to us. Participants in this 3-day workshop will experience this ancient and mesmerizing medium as they work under the tutelage of master artist Francisco Benitez.
