Blustery Day

 
 
Blustery Day
 
 
Encaustic and mixed media on 12"x12"x2" wood.
Finished my first encaustic today.  When I started this last week it was very cold here, thus "Blustery day".  This piece was done with encaustic medium and pigments of Raw Sienna, Yellow Ochre, Raw and Burnt Umber.  Accents of black and white were also added.
 
 

 
 
I am so amazed by the way the wax blends and moves when heated. The process is much slower than painting but far more gratifying for me.  Truly love this process and the results it produces.
