Can you help me with a name other than "Really Red" ?
|First stage. Oil paint on cradled board|
|Now I am into several days of applying encaustic; going back and forth from this painting, the commissioned portrait and 2 other paintings.|
|The surface is now covered with many, many layers of encasutic. It can't get much redder!|
|To break up the beautiful shiny surface, I stenciled oil and cold wax on top of the encaustic. I like the mat texture that contrasts with the bright encaustic|
