Painting - Encaustic Painting On Basswood Panel
Tree limbs sway with the mistral winds and it blows its cool air through autumnal fields. The original painting was created with encaustics on a wooden basswood panel.
Encaustic paintings are made with beeswax and damar, a natural tree resin. It's an ancient medium that began with the Romans 4,000 years ago and is now making a resurgence.
Encaustics have a transparent luminosity and tactile quality unparalleled in other media. Interesting textures are made with waxy layers that are scraped, incised and fused for effect.
Enjoy the shimmering qualities of "Mistral's Fury" which is readily reproduced on canvas, paper or metal.
