Encaustic Paintings

Encaustic paintings are made with beeswax to which pigment has been added. They were created hundreds of years ago in Greece and in mummy portraits in Egypt. I use a variety of tools in creating mine, and love the glow that I can get using bright colors. It can be very challenging manoeuvring the wax.
I find watercolor to be a fascinating medium! It can range from soft and subdued to bright and bold! I love trying a variety of techniques to obtain different results. There is always more learning to be pursued.
