encaustic class

for today's class it was all about texture and glazes

first i covered the board with pages from a science book

once i chose a color palette of greens, yellow, grey and blue

i add light washes of color so that some of the paper would show through

circles, drips and a tracing wheel highlighted with burnt umber oil paint

cheese cloth and oil paint to create more texture

I love this piece. Encaustic exploration isn't something that calls to me right now, but I love seeing your journey and all those luscious textures. Thanks so much for sharing.
