The Mist

The Mist
Image Size 6" x 6"
Encaustic

I love how this little encaustic came together.  The ethereal feeling of this painting is much stronger in person and I'm not sure it could be achieved with any other medium.  I painted shellac on the rusty color and burned it to get the texture.  I like the soft, misty feeling of the sky next to the texture of the earth.

I really need to get back to watercolors but can't seem to turn down the heat on encaustics.

  2. This is really cool. You get results that I agree could not be done with other media. Oh the color, the texture and the mood, it has it all!
