Figurative paintings in process

I am working on 3 more paintings for my "Into the Silence" series.
encaustic over an oil sketch. It is interesting that after I post a image, I can see the problem areas still to be solved.


I started this painting with broad strokes of encaustic over a scraped board. I still have all the lovely stain from the previous painting. I hope I can continue keeping this loose. That is my goal, but I tend to over work and loose the spontaneity.
So far, this is just oil



Detail of the face. Time to stop!
