This is “Orange”, an 8 x 10″ encaustic painting. I’ve included two pictures of the same piece to show how different a painting can look given the lighting and angles of any picture taken.
As with all paintings, I had fun with this picture by creating texture. Not only did I apply various shades with high heat to blend, I finished with texture by pressing a “swifter” pad into the hot wax and pulling away – to create the little bumps that you can see. I also used an eyedropper to drop spots of orange as a finishing touch.
