Most of my studio work in the past year has been done using encaustics. Encaustic paintings are painted with beeswax, resin, and pigment. It is an ancient process that was used by the Egyptians and Greeks, and examples have been found in Egyptian tombs.
Generally, the painting process involves using a hot palette to melt and mix the colored wax, painting it onto the panel using a brush, and fusing the layers with a heat gun. All paintings are on wood panels which provide a rigid and supportive surface. See About Encaustics and Care of Encaustics if you would like more information.
These paintings are grouped by subject matter:
