Passing By

Watercolor and Acrylic

Koi fish have always been one of my favorite subjects and I'm back to painting them once again. I had a piece of watercolor paper to which I had attached a piece of Masa paper which had crinkles and wrinkles in it.  They show up in parts of the painting, but not as much as I had hoped.  It was fun experimenting with that surface and the combination of watercolor and acrylic.

We finally got a couple of days that were a bit cooler so I did some encaustic painting in the garage.  The heat has been brutal for working outside with a heat gun and melted wax.  I'm looking forward to fall...

Although this is mostly encaustic, I did use a smudge of raw umber oil paint around the edges to give an antiqued feeling.  Most of the white in this painting is wax, but I added some white oil paint because I like the texture I get with the oil paint when I fuse it into the rest of the wax.

Tranquil Waters

I have a few canvases that I've painted with cadmium red paint as a ground and I decided to use one of them this week.  I really like seeing the red flecks peeking through the paint.  This was painted with a palette knife.
