During this difficult lockdown period I decided to embark on a new adventure and tried my hand at Encaustic Wax Art. This is a process, whereby you overlay and paint with beeswax mixed with damar resin. After creating your deisgn the wax allows you to continue to change your oil paint applications. You can scratch the wax for mark making, apply more paint and the process continues.
Here I have created a little bank along a forest stream, highlighting reeds, tree bark and greenery, just like you would find if you sat and relaxed, taking in all that surrounds you. I have called this painting Tranquility.
I applied a plain watercolour paper substraint, fixed firmly to a heavy bathroom tile. I then applied five coats of white coloured wax before then applying coloured oil paints to create this lovely scene. I love the beauty of the blue and greens together and the way you are drawn into the painting towards the back of the stream. An ideal gift for someone special.
The white box frame is 10inch square and costs £4.50 second class signed for and sent within three days. It is heavy and weighs over 1kg.
