encaustic class

sometimes i start with an idea
and then totaly get off track
but that's what class is for
learning new techniques
and experiencing "happy accidents"
not sure exactly what i was going for
but ended up with the above work
a photo from my country road trip a few weeks ago
i guess the "gold" represents the corn field
the sky was created with the heat gun
(which i don't use enough)
so i think i like the contrast of the smooth and rough
just not sure if i like the colour combo??

this one started out simple

but then i decided to add a little bit more

did i go too far???

I like the cornfield really a lot.

I really think the corn field is amazing. The color blocking is grat. I love that the background is a sewing pattern. The tree line gives the perfect break for detail.

I like the effects of the pattern paper. An especially great piece.

I love the first one Nancy...as soon as I saw it. And I think the color combination is just right. Earthy base and blue sky top!
