Flowing Tides


Flowing Tides

Feel the rush of the waves crashing, the ebb and flow as the sea races towards the shore – always in a hurry!

This painting is created by the encaustic process or hot wax painting with coloured pigments.  It contains beeswax and damar resin.  It is a particularly satisfying medium to use and the drying process is very quick.  You can use many tools, scrapers and brushes to shape the medium and a blow torch or heat gun to move the wax around the surface.  This allows the colours to merge and blend in a most unique way. Scraping back previous layers allows the beauty of the underpainting to peek through and adds to the overall textured layers.

I loved creating this painting – I love the sea!

The painting measures 12 x 12 inches on board and is framed in a white box frame with inner mount.  Overall size 19 x 19 inches.
