When Grey Matters
Painting - Encaustic Painting On Birch Panel
This seascape is reminiscent of Lake Shore Drive in Chicago overlooking Lake Michigan. It is created with encaustics on a wooden birch 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 "When Grey Matters" which can be readily captured in a canvas, paper or metal reproduction.
