  • Encaustic Art

    Hi

    I am an Encaustic artist - I paint in hot wax.

    Following a lovely welcome in your introduce yourself thread, it was suggested I post some photos of my artwork, I hope this is the right place to show some.

    This is a recent painting of a Sweet Pea in hot wax.

    Welcome Hazel.

    Your pictures are beautiful. I am no artist, but I do have some appreciation of quality work and I really like yours. I hope you will show us more pictures of your work in the future.

                  Hi Christa, yes there are lots of styles of encaustic painting and lots that can be done with the wax. I have only been painting in wax for a few years and am developing my style of painting in this wonderful medium. I have a real passion for painting in hot wax, as you say the colours are very vibrant and once polished have a wonderful sheen really bringing the pictures to life.

                  There are some videos online of me painting in wax, if anyone is interested in watching how I paint in hot wax, I can't post a link as I'm a newbie at the moment but you can either Google me or there are links on my blog and website.

                        Your pictures are great. I had a go at encaustic art, but I don't think I would ever be able to make something as nice as you have!

                          Thank you, I have now updated my signature and also added my youtube channel info, so if anyone would like to see how I paint in hot wax then there are several demonstrations online.

                            Hi Indri, thank you glad you like my paintings, there are lots of styles of Encaustic painting, when I got started the first painting I ever saw was an abstract and it was so beautiful, I just knew I had to have a go! the wax is such a great material to work with, and such great colours don't you agree?

                            I have added a link to my youtube channel into my signature now, so if you would like to see me paint there are several demonstration videos online that we have made to show how I paint in hot wax, the rose one is especially popular.
