"Swept Away", 11" x 14" encaustic painting
Below is a photograph I took on July 4th when I was at the beach, I knew it would inspire me with my next encaustic painting.
The lazy days of summer have arrived. No schedules, lots of sun and surf, and I have come to realize I am in the midst of creating a new series of encaustic paintings. I have been observing the tides since last winter but now I am able to notice so many different hues of color.
My goal will be to work on a slightly larger scale, I already have 12" x 12" and 18" x 24" panels. Once I use those I will consider ordering a 22" x 30" panel (the same size I am comfortable using with watercolor) but I need to ease my way into this. I also realize that I am going to need to order much larger quantities of wax medium!
Below are some of my other encaustic paintings that could work in this new series, I am not sure what to call it (have any suggestions?) but for now I am thinking "Sea and Sky".
