Nautilus Dreaming

Encaustic painting is my favourite method of image making. It has gained some popularity in the UK where most artists use an iron to apply the wax which yields a very particular effect. For many reasons I prefer the more traditional painterly methods using hotplates, hot air guns, blow torches, razor blades and traditional brushes. This method yields a wonderful range of possibilities-from realistic and representational through to abstract and impressionistic. Encaustic monotypes are also possible as are encaustic sculptures. This is a particularly flexible medium. The aroma of the melted beeswax is an added pleasure.
