Disdain

"Disdain"

I started this painting by rubbing some dry pigment into the wood which had been first coated with white encaustic gesso.  It looked soft and subtle until I added a layer of clear medium over it.  The color became a bit more intense, which was fine.  I like that the grain of the wood can be seen in areas.  I've built up layers of wax, alcohol inks and shellac burns to create the texture.

  1. Oh Nancy these just keep getting better and better. Is it the shellac burn that gives the lacy textures?

    1. A lot of the lacy texture is from the shellac burn, but the opaque colors can break apart and make a lacy texture as well.

    1. Le titre est un commentaire négatif sur mes sentiments politiques en ce moment.
