Swimming - Encaustic

This is another encaustic I did in the workshop where the technique was embedding.  After laying down several layers of wax and doing some painting on the different layers, I embedded objects into one wet wax layer.  A final thin wax layer was then added to make sure everything was secure and not going to pop off.  Encaustics should be viewed "live".  It's very difficult to represent them accurately in photos.  Once again, these are not great works of art by any stretch, but an opportunity to try a new medium.  With much practice they CAN be beautiful pieces.  Not there yet!  Ha

But you’re getting close! I hope I get to see this “under the sea” rendition soon. Good job!

Looks like something I did many years ago in Vacation Bible School. ; ) Okay, not really.
