"Autumn Bounty ii", encaustic painting by Sharon Lynn Williams


"Autumn Bounty ii", 6 x 8" encaustic painting on board
SOLD

This is my second attempt at the multilayered and heated encaustic. This time the layers did not include white. That white really comes up through the paint, so you have to watch out for that. I let this one be more abstract than the last one, and I really like it. What do you think?


Enjoy!

"Autumn Bounty", encaustic painting by Sharon Lynn Williams


"Autumn Bounty", 6 x 6" encaustic painting on panel
SOLD

This was my first try at layering multiple colour layers, and then heating them all up to see what happens. Well it was SO cool -the bottom layer was white, then yellow, then rust then blue. The colours all came up to the surface in interesting patterns, which reminded me of fall leaves. So I took it in that direction and added a few stems, refined some shapes and then went back in with 2 lighter tints of the blue to form the sky holes. I think it is very interesting to look at, and I love the idea of 'how little can I say, and still say the subject', leaving the interpretation to the viewer. All you really have to do is give one bit of suggestion (the leaf shapes in centre right) and the viewer turns all the other bits of colour into leaves. Very cool!

Enjoy!

"Garden Of Earthly Delight", encaustic mixed media painting by Sharon Lynn Williams


Garden Of Earthly Delights, 9x9" encaustic mixed media painting
SOLD

This is another encaustic exploration piece, this time beginning with an image that I shot many years ago in Italy. I altered the image in photoshop, adhered it to the support and then laid wax over it in vertical stips. Then I went back into the image and added oil colour to the statue and leaves. I am amazed how the wax looks like rain coming down. What a cool medium encaustic is!

New Artistic Adventures!!!


"Land, Sea, Air", encaustic mixed media, 12 x 16"


I know I haven't posted in a while, but my have I been busy! A few weeks ago I attended an Encaustic Workshop with Ken Bourassa. We had 2 days to play with wax, and I got hooked. It is amazing what can be done with hot wax, and it is so hard to control -I just love it! This is my first ever encaustic painting, and there is a lot going on in it. I will continue to post my explorations in case you are interested.


Enjoy!
