Wax On Wednesday - Three

Happy hump day! It's Wednesday and time to show you my third go at Encaustic Wax landscapes. I am getting faster at it now, and thought it was time to start adding more detail. Hope you enjoy, and again BIG THANKS for all the words of encouragement!!!

Pops of pink flowers here, and I love how the Encaustic Iron dragged the wax on the water part to make it look like ripples and reflections! With encaustics you never know what you will get while using the iron, and I just like to go with it....what ever shows up I try to work with!
I added drops of wax to make the flowers and foliage in the foreground this time. The texture is wonderful on this Autumn like piece. AND... I finally got the hang of making birds a little better.
Rubbing away wax to make room for water is definitely my new favorite. I love that you never know what you will get with this technique. Dragonflies still need help, but are getting somewhat better.
Next week, I am going to be showing you a step out on one of the least I hope I can remember to take photos. Stay tuned! Again...huge thanks on all the comments!


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!

  2. Wow Anita, like I said over on FB, you are just like a professional now! Your work with the encaustic wax is wonderful! Anne xx

  3. Wow- this is great. You're good at this. I'm curious about wax and have always wanted to try it out.

  4. Nice landscape scene! Amazing how quickly you are picking up all the techniques. Thanks for sharing.

  5. DUDE, wow!! You are making the world a better and beautiful place. I love your dragonflies. The one on the left really looks realistic. The one on the right I thought was an octopus coming out of the water; which is kind of mystical magical in its own way, but I see now, it's not that...but I still LOVE it! You are doing incredible with this new journey you're on.
