Encaustic Wax Painting 'A Night of Lights (Carousel)'
This is an original encaustic painting.
Created on a wood painting panel, it measures approximately 8X8 inches, with a depth of 1 inch.
For this work I was inspired by the mess I made. on my studio table, I lay down newspaper that I muck up as I work.
This work uses multiple techniques, to create a dynamic surface.
-I collaged down the newspaper piece, as my initial layer. I avoided putting wax over the carousel part of the image.
-I laid down a few more colours along the righthand edge
-The surface is incredibly textured, as the wax was built up as I worked
