One of the things that I love about painting with wax is the dreamy feeling that can be achieved by melting the pigments. This started out as an abstract but as I worked on it, I began to see a hill with trees on a foggy morning. I am really happy this one!
White encaustic pigment is one of my favorite colors to work with because it is totally opaque and tends to break apart in a unique way when heated. I think you can probably see the difference in the white around the edges (the white of the ground support) and the white in the middle of the painting which is the white encaustic.
