Sunrise at Burleigh Falls
12 x 12 in. square
Encaustic and mixed media on wooden panel
Red sky in the morning. Savor the silence before the storm arrives. Sharply outlined against the glow the silhouettes sway gently and whisper “Seize the Day”.
The painting process moved from the heat of flowing paint, using a brush and heat gun to manipulate the paint (beeswax, resin and pigment) then progressing to sharp details and contrast through the use of a hot iron and the addition of string.
