This wintry landscape showing distant mountains on the horizon and eggplant skies above was created with encaustics on ceramic tile.
Encaustic paint is a mixture of beeswax, damar (a tree resin that hardens the wax) and colored pigment. The paint is melted at 200F and applied in 6-12 layers onto a stiff substrate. Each layer is fused to the layer beneath to create, in effect, a big ball of wax.
Encaustic's waxy layers create a luminous translucency unparalleled in oils and acrylics. Enjoy the shimmering qualities of "Mountains No. 3" which can be readily captured in a canvas, paper or metal reproduction.
