Encaustic Experiment!

Tidal River by Catherine Raine, 2010

I started working on this piece two weeks ago at my first encaustic class at OCAD. After an ill-advised application of the iron which turned my greens and oranges into a ratty-looking brown, I scraped away the brown and started again. Last night I spent a couple of hours experimenting with an encaustic iron and blocks of coloured wax. Fun!

Creating texture is fun fun fun! I really recommend taking an encaustic class or workshop. I wonder if WJC offers them.
