Sledding Fun! (Encaustic)

I have done some sledding-themed peices in oil in the past couple of years but wanted to try one in encaustic (beeswax + pigment). I loved how this turned out with some relatively smooth areas and some "crunchy" areas just like real sledding snow. I toned the board in darker colors and in blue tones first then layered and torched several times with white tones. I did this one for the Art Open House event, too.

8x8 encaustic on clayboard, $495 SOLD
