Encaustic-Wax with Shawna Moore from USA

Still coming down from the clouds after my recent event in Melbourne with a master of this medium. THANK YOU   THANK YOU   THANK YOU  Shawna Moore

Here she is sharing lots of her experience & demonstrating some fine techniques with R&F encaustic paints & oil sticks.   Wow what colours there are !



I am so happy I managed to overcome many challenges of a workshop situation to discover my own painterly style once again. A bit reminicent  of the Aussie expressionist artist Andrew Sibley whose work I've always  admired !

My strong desire to develop this amazing medium further was made possible by Shawna's encouragement along with subtle methods she demonstrated so well.

Probably what made it even better was the experience of being in Fitzroy for 5 days. All the historical character buildings and so many interesting & individual shops.

Great efforts go into arty Fitzroy shopfronts & the shops are all different

Just a taste of some streets around Fitzroy
