Eclipse

"Eclipse"
Image size 6" x 6"
Encaustic

Although I wasn't  motivated to look at the eclipse today, I felt like I needed to acknowledge it in my weekly painting.  I did a layer of clear medium followed by a layer of white encaustic and inscribed the circles.  Then, I added raw umber oil paint to the circles and background. I wiped most of it off of the flat surface, added turquoise wax and some burnt sienna oil paint.  I like how the white wax came through when I fused it.

    1. These are very different colors for me to use. I'm not even sure why I chose them, but I do like them together.
