First of all, another i-Phone painting. A very simple one, but at this point I was still experimenting with what the various tools can do. I like the freedom of the scribbly trees, and the delicacy of the dainty flowers in the grass.
And here is another technique I love to use, which gives completely unexpected and exciting results.
This is painted with wax, and the clocks were collaged within the wax. I couldn't think what it was saying to me until I turned it round by 90 degrees, and then I saw it like a stage set, with two mysterious figures about to walk behind the curtain, and this inspired the words I wanted to add.
If you haven't tried encaustic art it really is worth investigating. It's safe and simple, using a small iron, like a travel iron. Simple landscapes give experience with working techniques and produce really nice images. They make lovely greetings cards and people love getting them because they are the original artwork, not a photograph. More experience lets you experiments with abstracts. Look up encaustic art on the internet.
