The Precipice

"The Precipice"
Image size 24" x 24"
Encaustic, oil, ink

Complimentary color combinations make nice mixtures.  My favorite color combination is blue and orange.  This painting has various shades of blues and oranges, with the orange leaning toward rust more than a true orange.

I started by adding alcohol inks to the gessoed surface before I added any wax.  I wanted the bright, strong color not to move as I added wax.  Not much of the original color is visible in the finished painting, but it does add some depth where it can be seen.  As I continued to add layers of wax, I also used oil paint to add some interesting textures.  When I felt I was almost finished, I added a final layer of inks.  Then, I decided that it needed more texture so I continued adding layers until I finally felt it was finished.


  1. Bonjour chère amie,

    Je trouve fascinant la manière que vous avez réalisé cette dernière oeuvre.
    De très belles nuances de couleurs.

    Gros bisous ��
