Moody Mist

"Moody Mist"

Encaustic

This painting started out much brighter, but as I added layers, I found that I preferred the less distinct, softer colors.  There are probably 10 layers of wax and oil paint on some areas and at least 5-7 layers  on the majority of it.

Perception

This painting has much darker colors than I usually use, but as I was painting it, it seemed to need some punch.  I added oil paint and some shellac burning  to this as well as many layers and I like how the colors from previous layers are visible upon close inspection.
