For me this summer seems to be all about trying new things. If you had asked me a year ago, if I could imagine to paint an abstract painting one day, I would have raised my eye-brows about such a ridiculous question. Never say never applies once again! For this week’s Summer of Color challenge, I painted my first abstract encaustic painting, using the required two greens and one pink. I admit, it is not a lot of pink but it is there.
I call it “Tempted” because I was tempted to add something figurative but I was a good girl and resisted :).
The inspiration for this came from Shari Replogle and her wonderful “Wax on Wednesday” videos on YouTube. I have been watching them frequently over the last few months and was intrigued. If you are interested in encaustic painting techniques, I would highly recommend Shari’s videos. You can also visit her blog “Plays with Paper”.
I am glad I tried something new again. This was so much fun and for sure not my last abstract encaustic painting.
