About This Painting:Look at that texture, not to mention the color (which, btw, is even better in real life!) The surface of this painting is so deliciously complex that the photo does it no justice. These encaustics are truly best experienced in person. They are a visual feast and endless fascinating to look at.
If you haven't guessed already I am totally hooked on this very ancient, extremely beautiful artform. There are so many things to love about it, and I am just getting started exploring the tools, paints and surfaces.
The colors are exquisitely translucent, they blend, melt and fuse in spontaneous ways, the surface is glossy like enamel, and they have that wonderful honey scent of bees wax.
I have found a sealer made in the Netherlands, especially for encaustic paintings that protects the wax surface, toughens it up a bit and keeps it glossy. It makes the paintings look even more fabulous.
Below are my other encaustic paintings to date:
