Winter Water

Merry Christmas.  I hope are all enjoying the day.  If you are in the areas that are having freezing temperatures I hope you are able to stay inside all cozy and warm.

I was playing around with some shellac burning in the water portion of this painting. I love painting clouds and water, so this is a perfect subject for me.

Kelp Bed

Encaustic and ink
I think these blues and greens are my favorite color combination.  The colors are so soothing.  I was going to do a shellac burn on this painting, but really like the texture created by the alcohol inks so for now, I'm calling it finished.

Shore Breaker

"Shore Breaker"

I think this is one of my favorite waves so far.  It's pretty heavy so I must have put a lot more wax on it than usual.  I know I kept layering and layering, building up the colors.  I wanted this painting to have a lot of movement and energy.  I love how the foam from previous waves gets drawn up into the new waves right before they break and tried to get that feeling in this painting.

Fanciful Wave

"Fanciful Wave"
Image size 5.5" x 6"
This is a poured acrylic that I finished this week.  I love the swirls in the paint and so when I added white paint for the spray I made fanciful shapes rather than trying to make it more realistic.  It's a bit crafty looking, but that's okay with me.  I've been working on a large encaustic which should be done for next week's painting.
