Well, actually I am finding it very interesting to see how my style of painting in wax is evolving as I gain more confidence and experiment more with the supports and techniques that can be applied in encaustic art.
From the descriptions of my paintings you will note I tend to use block waxes. This is simply laziness on my part and for ease of use/storage.
However, I have been experimenting with different types of supports from encaustic card, canvas panels through to box canvases. I must admit that I am rather taken with canvas panels at the moment finding it easier to manipulate the waxes with the various hot tools such as iron, hot air gun and stylus. The stylus actually has different tips to create different effects which I found very useful for my latest offering.
An English Field is the title of my newest painting. This was inspired by a recent walk in the grounds of Scotney Castle. Although closed to visitors during the winter the general public are allowed to wander around the estate. It was the weekend before we had snow so although it was bitterly cold, it was a beautiful crisp and sunny day. It was lovely to be walking around the various fields, watching the sheep as they grazed by a stream that ran nearby. This painting is to be found for sale in my Etsy shop where you will see more photographs. Some of the pictures were taken with flash and some, like the one above, without flash. Hence the difference in lighting effects!
