This week's painting is another acrylic pour.  I really like the feeling of texture that this has even though the paint is flat.  I think there must be a bunch of scuba divers just below this image causing all of the bubbles in the water.

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.

Moody Mist

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.

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.
