 :thankyou: Val, I honestly believe my success has a huge amount to do with what I have learnt here from Nolan and Dennis, as well as the support from all in the forums. I started off with only a bit of pyrography experience when I signed up for the drawing course and then the painting ones. I still use them as  reference because it does not matter what medium you paint in the  colour theory is the same.

Absolutely couldn't agree more, those Clark boys totally altered my outlook of my visual world! My brain is fused in seeing everything through the colour wheel!  :2funny:   It's all about colour, lovely complimentary colours, shades and highlights.... mist altering aerial perspective....  :D   

Now it's just a matter of refining what we have learned and continuing to build upon that solid base.  :painting:

Cheers, Val

Oh, Zilpa.  This is all so delightful to hear.  That old expression about "paying your dues" will really pay off for you.  You have worked hard and can now reap the rewards.  So happy that you are giving new life to encaustics. I find them totally fascinating.

 :thankyou:Val and Mea, here is me giving the local year 7 class a demo of the encaustic painting with an iron. Not that you can see me. They all got to take a painting on card home.

Looks as though you have captured their attention, that is a great feat in itself!  O0   Perhaps you will inspire another budding famous artist. Such a thrill!  :congrats:

 :thankyou: Patricia, Val, Mea and Dennis. I had a photographer walk in today and he asked if he could take some pictures of me working. So here is a photo taken by Roderick Walker, from Western Australia.

 :heeha: That is a large piece Zilpa! Looks very intricate, but coming on famously!  O0 I should think this one will be a while yet before you start the wax process. Your process is fascinating to watch.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: Val, yes a few more sessions of burning to go. Luckily my cards are going well. People came in the other day asking if I was the lady that paints with an iron. So the word is spreading that I am there and they are starting to come specifically to see me, which is always a good feeling. I have been targetting the bus tour groups. Cold calling letting them know I am there. The owners of the building told me yesterday that they are starting a Saturday market in the adjoining building,sothat will be great.
