New Painting : Sunflowers
Hot Wax Painting : Golden Sunflowers
I have painted Sunflowers over the past year several times, they are a favourite flower of mine, I love the way they are tall and majestic, standing proud in gardens and fields.
This is a new painting, created over the last weekend, where as in the past some of my paintings have taken me no time at all, I now take time over them and can spend several hours on a piece like this taking me over a few days to complete.
The sunflowers have been painted using a limited palette of orange, yellow and brown waxes, with some white and black for the highlights and centre. The encaustic iron was the main tool used in creating the picture with some stylus work for the detailing as this is a larger piece at 16 x 12.
Many of the paintings on the Art In Wax are for sale, please contact me for details if you see a painting you are interested it buying.
