New Exhibition of Miniature ACEO Art By Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on October 19th, 2017

Winter : A New Exhibition of Miniature Art By Hazel Rayfield

New Winter Theme ACEO Collection Now Live

This month sees the launch of a new exhibition page on Art In Wax, the new exhibition is a collection of my miniature art, and features 6 ACEO size paintings with a winter theme.

ACEO ( Art Card Originals and Editions) are size 3.5 x 2.5 inches.

My “winter Wonderland” style paintings have always been popular from tiny miniatures to wall size paintings, so it seemed apt that my latest series for the Exhibition page would be in this seasonal theme.

Please visit the Exhibit page to see this new series of miniatures pictures on display. Winter Theme Miniature Art In Wax Exhibition.

If you would like to purchase one of my miniature ACEO paintings please visit the ACEO shop page. These paintings are for sale, if you don’t see them in the shop please contact me. If the painting you especially like is sold, I am happy to paint commissions in this style too.

Exhibition Fantasy Flowers :: Posted by: Hazel on January 8th, 2016

New for 2016 Art Exhibition on Art In Wax

Fantasy Flowers : New Online Exhibit

Art In Wax Exhibtion
View Exhibit here : Fantasy Flowers Art In Wax
Over the past few months I have been drawing and painting some new Zentangle inspired pieces, there is a blog post about these pattern style pictures, so I thought I would paint a small series of them as fantasy flowers to display on the Art In Wax Exhibit page, which I tend to change once or twice a year.

This new collection of 4 A3 size pictures painted in my Encaustic wax are very different to my normal style of flower paintings. They are inspired by a new type of art I discovered a few months ago and which I am enjoying as part of my creativity, it is a drawing art form known as Zentangle.

My own “doodle tangles” as I call them are based on this type of pattern drawing and the fantasy flowers have a patchwork style to them. A Zentangle originally was a drawing on a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch piece of card, I like to doodle my pattern / tangles in different shapes, as many people do, my favourite being flowers, as you will know if you have read before I am passionate about painting flowers.

Inspiration : Tangle meets Wax

Inspired by my ink drawings I thought it would be fun to paint a collection of these fantasy flowers using my wax paints. It was a challenge and I hope you like the results : www.artinwax.co.uk/exhibit-zentangle-fantasy-flowers.php

Buying Art In Wax – if you would like to buy one of these paintings or any others shown on my blog or website please contact me to see if they are still available.

Sunflowers – Painting Exhibit :: Posted by: Hazel on January 12th, 2013

Sunflower Exhibit

Encaustic Art Exhibit : Sunflower Collection

This week see a new exhibition published on the Art In Wax website. The theme of this exhibit is one of my favorite flowers – Sunflowers.

Sunflower Exhibition

I recently bought a bouquet of sunflowers and had taken photographs to paint from, I don’t tend to look at the photographs while I am painting. I make sketches from the pictures and then using these sketches to look at as a guide to placing the blooms and depth of the picture I paint the flowers directly with the wax onto the gloss card.
sunflower painting and drawing
This process of working gives an impressionistic feel to the paintings as much of the painting come from my imagination as I work with the hot wax. I am showing some of the photographs in the exhibit, these demonstrate the collection is based more on the similarities in the photographs rather than actual copies.

The exhibits page has six of the sunflower paintings I have created for this online exhibition : Sunflowers Art In Wax

Famous Sunflowers

Throughout time sunflowers have been a popular subject for painters and artists.

One of the most famous being that of Vincent van Gogh and his vase of sunflowers. Bouquet of Sunflowers by Claude Monet in 1881 an oil on canvas paintings is one of my own personal favorites and “Three Sunflowers And A Bottle of Water” 1996 by David Hockney has such a different and yet vibrancy I just had to mention it too.

Fun to paint

This series of paintings was great fun to paint and has taken several weeks to complete, I used various tools in the process. All pictures are approximately A4 (29 x 21 cm) in size and create on encaustic gloss card using encaustic coloured wax.

Video diary

Whilst painting this collection I have made a short video diary showing some of the techniques use in the process ……..

You can watch this and a demonstration of me painting a smaller hot wax encaustic sunflower via the Art In Wax Youtube Channel or below in this blog post.

Please leave me a comment if you liked the exhibit and /or the video diary.

Paintings from this series maybe for sale, please contact me Hazel Rayfield direct for details.
