Peter's Canyon Encaustic
Image Size 7" x 5"
I combined encaustic with a little oil paint for this painting. I have a lot to learn about this medium but am enjoying my experimentation with it. I'm not crazy about the shape of this tree so I will probably try to change that tomorrow but for now, it's finished.
I'm having problems with getting little pin holes in the wax. Even if I get rid of them when I fuse the first layer, they seem to appear as I add and fuse more wax. If anyone out there knows what is causing this, I would love to learn from you. I am using encaustic gesso to prime my boards. Maybe that is too porous and is causing the problem. I think I will try an encaustic with no gesso and see what happens.
