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!
