I'm getting ready to do an encaustic demonstration in about a week so I've been concentrating on this medium lately. This week, I wanted to do a painting of water. Encaustic is such a perfect medium for this subject and it's fun to try to get a feeling of movement. I thought I was finished with this several times and then decided to add some color and then the heat gun would move the wax in a way I didn't like so I would add more color and heat it again. I love the way the white breaks apart and was trying to get more of that effect but was having trouble with that today. I splattered the white to get an effect of water spray. I did that by flicking the brush with my finger - probably not a good idea with hot wax but sometimes, we have to suffer for our art. Ha ha!
