"Tumbling Tide", 12" x 12" encaustic painting
This is how my painting looked at the end of yesterday -
I have definitely been focused on encaustic paintings and image transfers this summer. It feels like I am doing 2 completely different things using the same medium. I have been trying to decide if one way is better, or should I write, requires more skill, than the other. Should I be developing my free-hand painting skills over encaustic image transfer skills? Do you consider one technique more of an art form than the other? these are just a few of the questions I have been asking myself lately. I know it's not always good to have to define one's art, (but for reasons I am not ready to share at this time), I need to define where I am at with encaustic art and I need to choose one use vs. the other. Which would you pick? why? any input would be truly appreciated!
