Embracing Encaustic Artists

The big surprise is that there will be two eBooks instead of one, both under the Embracing Encaustic title. This allows a total of 70 artists to be included between the two books while keeping downloads manageable. The second eBook, Embracing Encaustic: Mixing Media, will have all new techniques and will be available within the next 2 months.

The artists represented in the pages of my Embracing Encaustic eBooks were gracious enough to allow me to share their work with you, and for that I am forever grateful. These books wouldn’t be nearly as interesting without their vast talents and generosity. I’m so excited to share their work with you!

Embracing Encaustic: Mixing MediaYou may have heard that my Embracing Encaustic book series has been updated and released exclusively in eBook format! Here’s a link to the official announcement with some images from the first book.

If you aren’t a regular reader of eBooks, never fear! I’ve got easy instructions below on how to download and read them. Publishing this series exclusively as eBooks allowed me to create a more comprehensive books at half the price which can be downloaded instantly anywhere in the world.

Aside from the gratification of an instant download I think the best part of an electronic book is that you can double tap on each image and enlarge it to view the details, just as you would on your smart phone. Try THAT with a printed book!

If you have a dedicated Kindle reader then you already know how easy eBooks are to download and read.

You don’t need a separate Kindle device to read eBooks. If you want to read them on a tablet, smart phone, PC or Mac you’ll just need to download a little bit of free software called the Kindle Reading App. Amazon now has a built in link on my book page to make it even easier to get.

Easy instructions for purchasing and reading my eBook

Here are a few easy steps to downloading and reading my eBook:

  1. Go to http://www.lindarobertsonarts.com/books/ and click on the link of the eBook you want to purchase.
  2. Look for the area on the page that says “Get the Free Kindle App” and enter your email address (I would suggest using your email address instead of entering your phone number if you don’t text much).
  3. Amazon will send you a link to download the appropriate software. Be sure to open that Amazon email on whatever device you want to use to read the book. If you want to use a tablet, open it using the email program on your tablet. If you want to use a Mac or PC, open it using the email program on your Mac or PC.
  4. Once you have the Kindle software installed just go back to the eBook link and purchase the eBook. Your purchase will be delivered to whichever device you have listed in the box on the right side of the screen.

Yes, it’s that easy. Enjoy!

Embracing Encaustic: Learning to Paint with BeeswaxThe time has finally come! The electronic edition of my book, Embracing Encaustic: Learning to Paint with Beeswax, is finally available.

If you aren’t a regular reader of eBooks, never fear! Follow these easy instructions on how to download and read my eBook.

The surprise is that there will actually be two eBooks instead of one, both under the Embracing Encaustic title, which allowed me to include a total of 70 artists while keeping downloads manageable. The first release is available now, the revised third edition of Embracing Encaustic: Learning to Paint with Beeswax. This contains essentially the same content as the previously printed book, but with 35 exciting new artists who not only share their work but also reveal their personal painting methods and explain why they are compelled to make the work they do.

The second eBook, Embracing Encaustic: Mixing Media, will be filled with all new step-by-step techniques including working with shellac, using stencils, mark making, creating encaustic monotypes, pouring wax and more. The gallery section of the second book will include an additional 35 artists, sharing work that relates to the techniques I’ll share in that book. I expect this next book to be available by the end of March.
