Dry, 1 & 2....

10x16, Oil/ 2-10x8 Encaustic Panels

I have been experimenting with a new surface.. Encaustic Panels. Made for painting with wax, or Encaustics, the surface is very smooth.. and absorbent. For me, it almost demands the use of a palette knife. The brushwork seems to get quickly absorbed and sets up instantly, allowing the impasto to rest undisturbed on top. This board also seems ideal for use in my goal to see more movement in the paint.
