More still life in encaustic. This time I added translucent handmade paper between layers of wax. The painting was basically finished when I added the paper. But what I found that the paper had soften the colors a bit too much. So I went back in and added more colors.
I’m finding that working with encaustic with realistic subjects gives an abstract quality. The texture is there and abstracted background is there. I just love how it comes across.
