Fun With Wax
Here is a view of one of my fry pans, and my palette.
Two details from encaustic paintings on canvas..
First Encaustic Paintings
A while ago I decided to explore encaustic painting. I was looking for something that was spontaneous like watercolor, but with the richness and depth of oils. So I went online and bought some supplies, and when they arrived, I dove in. It's been quite fun.
I've started a series of somewhat whimsical pieces. They are watercolor/gouache on watercolor paper, mounted on Masonite, with collage and then finally encaustic painting on the top. The wax adds a richness and depth to the watercolor. It also has the benefit of looking somewhat like oil paints.
