I received the first press proofs of my revised book yesterday and they looked better than I ever imagined! The resolution is so good that you can see brush strokes in many of the works and the color is brilliant. I was especially interested in seeing the work of my 25 guest artists, as those are all new to this edition of the book.
Here’s a list of the guest artists who will be included in the Embracing Encaustic: Learning to Paint with Beeswax:
Janet Bartlett Goodman
Diana Gonzalez Gandolfi
Bridgette Guerzon Mills
In addition to sharing their work in the book, each artist also shares some insight into how the work was created, often sharing surprising tips and tricks along the way. I think this is my favorite aspect of the new edition. These artists have been so generous in sharing their knowledge! To view more work by each of these artists visit www.embracingencaustic.com for links to their web sites.
I’m expecting the books to arrive by the end of May. I’ll announce it on this blog when they are available for purchase!
