Long Weekend of Art


I decided to try painting with encaustics. I decided to start with an encaustic painting I had started last year, but I had put away because I wasn't satisfied with the colors or the composition. Originally I was trying to use the encaustic like paint, working on a canvas with some lace and rice paper added for texture.

I added drips of contrasting color from a height, to get splashes, and I am a bit more satisfied with the picture, but I think it still needs some pale blue dots to counterbalance the yellow.
