A wonderful Encaustic and Ceracolor Workshop with Paco Benitez

Using the ancient palette of the Greeks, which we now fondly refer to as the Zorn palette, participants experienced using a limited palette of ochre, white, red, and black in both encaustics and the newly produced Ceracolors. 
Students worked from reference materials, images of Fayum portraits and a live model. during the workshop.  Paco Benitez is the premier master of using the limited palette for contemporary representational painting in encaustics and everyone gained so much from his expertise with this art form.
Thank you Paco for another wonderful workshop!  We look forward to having you come back to California for another workshop in the near future!
