Encaustic painting of the sea crashing onto rocks at my favourite beach on the Central Coast NSW, Australia. My latest offerings are ‘encaustic’ which is an ancient technique using melted wax medium and pigments ‘fused’ to a ridged surface. As a result the surface has a beautiful translucent quality as it is built up of many thin layers of encaustic. The surface is a spectrum of texture, slathered with brushstrokes and oozing with drips. The medium is perfectly suited to my latest theme about the sea.
