encaustic class


today i worked on a piece for one of my clients
she was kind enough to give me a whole book
of charts and cruising guides
over 120 pages, 12 x 16
great for backgrounds
which i used above
it shows their yacht club

and a photo i had taken of the "bluffs"
last year while on a boat trip from the same club

i used clear wax
cheese cloth


and rubbed in sienna oil paint
to highlight the texture
--------------
i hope she likes it!
