Art In Wax : Artwork By Hazel Rayfield
Encaustic Painting and Online Art Gallery
Hello and welcome to Art In Wax.
I am Hazel Rayfield, Encaustic Artist, and my passion is painting in hot wax. I love to paint all types of subjects from flowers and floral images to landscapes and seascapes.
I feel many of my paintings are in an impressionist style. I am often inspired by nature and countryside where we live here in England and yet many of my pieces come from just my imagination. I have also painted random subjects such as an F1 car, an occasional bird and sometimes a series of paintings such as one I entitled Lady's Day which were painted as part of an online exhibit, a new hot wax exhibition of Sunflowers for 2013 is now live.
I find working and creating artwork with encaustic wax fascinating and I am constantly amazed at how creative a medium this is, the way the wax flows allows me to create the texture and movement I want to achieve in my paintings.
Please have a look around this, my Art In Wax website, there is more information about me, Hazel Rayfield and about encaustic art in general, plus a gallery of some of my pieces of art, which I am adding too and expanding all the time.
The Art In Wax Blog
My blog has information and news on my paintings and what is new to the site. Recent posts include; "How inspiring memories can be" and "Working with wax on canvas board". I am a keen blogger and posts include information such as where Art In Wax has been featured in a national Magazine and seen on TV.
Watch me paint - using my heat tools
You can watch me paint using hot wax on the Art In Wax You Tube channel, where we now have uploaded several films of me painting, the how I paint a rose in encaustic wax is very popular, plus the latest demonstration of painting a sunflower. We have also created several films showing techniques for painting in hot wax, with heat tools, adding finishing touches such as birds or a fence to a painting to draw the eye into a landscape for example.
The videos have become very popular and enable visitors to see just how I have created my style of artwork in hot wax using heat tools. More films are planned for the 2013, I am currently working on making a workshop style film featuring painting hot wax poppies, so why not subscribe to Art In Wax channel.
