Lake Powell Encaustic

Lake Powell Encaustic
Image size 6" x 4"

I painted a small encaustic this week.  Lake Powell is a favorite subject of mine to paint.  I love the rusty colors of the canyons against the blues of the sky and water.  This beautiful lake has my favorite complementary color combination - blue/orange - occurring naturally  in the dramatic canyons.


  1. Bonjour chère amie,

    Quel splendide mariage de couleurs !... Je suis subjuguée.
    Gros bisous ♡

  2. Lake Powell is a favorite!!! I'd like to visit it again!!
    You did a beautiful job on the mountains and the water is wonderful, Nancy!! Your encaustic paintings are outstanding!!

  3. Dear Nancy - this painting really is outstanding. The colors are so beautiful and makes me want to visit this lovely spot. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you Debbie. You should try to visit. It's really beautiful.

  4. Something so tranquil here, Nancy. I want to be just sitting and gazing at this lovely spot myself.

  5. Agree this is a great color scheme. Nothing like the West landscape and colors, especially for us Easterners. I like the texture this technique gives.
    Got the stuff for frMing, am going to,give it a shot and will let you know.

  6. I also love the texture that can be achieved with encaustics. I will be waiting to hear about the outcome of the framing experiment.
