Diane Poinski – A Master at Hand Painting Photos

I found Diane Poinski on Facebook recently. She does wonderful hand painted photos and more importantly, she has written a free e-book to teach others to do the same. This is a technique I have always been curious about but never tried because I didnt like the expense of having to buy tubes of Marshall’s photo oils needed to do it. Until now, that was the best method, but now with the introduction of PanPastels, it is less messy and a lot less expensive. Not that the PanPastels are cheap by any means, but they seem to be easier to manage and have other applications besides hand painting photos, which justifies the expense better.

Encaustic Artist and Author Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch

Keeping with my new fascination with photography and encaustic, I just purchased two new books by author and encaustic art Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch on Amazon. One is on the way and one is due for release the beginning of August 2011. She is a wonderful instructor and a terrific artist, not to mention a really nice person, too. Very generous with her knowledge. She also runs EncaustiCamps, which I wish I was nearby so I could attend. Check out her website at pbsartist.com if you are interested in seeing her work.
