Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Cottage Collection Miniature Dolls House Art :: Posted by: Hazel on November 22nd, 2017

Cottage Landscape Miniature Art

Dollhouse and Miniature Art

Just a very quick post today as I have been very busy with painting and not had a lot of time for blogging, but I wanted to show my latest pieces of Art In Wax ….

These new paintings are all in a pretty soft and colorful style and each features a pretty cottage in the landscape.

They are proving very popular and this month several have gone to new homes for dolls houses and miniature collectors both here in the UK and overseas. In fact of the five paintings shown here currently the only one still available is the one in the black frame …. but never fear there will be more of these ….

Why not check out my Art In Wax Etsy store or follow my Art In Wax page on Facebook where I show all my new pictures first.

Encaustic Art winter landscape :: Posted by: Hazel on December 5th, 2016

Winter Valley Landscape

New seasonal painting

This winter scene is an A5 painting mounted in a 12 x 10 inch cream mount. It is for sale at the time of this blog post – £35 including UK postage. Contact me to arrange to buy.

I have temporarily framed it in a plain white frame to show how it can maybe be displayed, the frame has no glass, I personally think my Art In Wax looks great without glass as the sheen of the wax paints can be seen much more displayed this way

The frame is NOT for sale. The painting comes mounted in a quality cream mount with backing board attached. This painting would make a great Christmas gift for someone who likes unusual unique things.

Original Art Makes a great gift

From feedback I get from my Art I know that it often given as a gift, many people come back for more after they buy a piece of my art. I have got to know some of my collectors over the years and they tell me that my work of often a talking point as people haven’t heard of Encaustic Art or hot wax painting and are interested to know more.

Likewise I am told they make great gifts, again as they can be a talking point and that they are often something the gift receiver likes as it is unique and original.

Showing and Display Art Online :: Posted by: Hazel on November 28th, 2012

Art Online

How we display and show art online

I have written a couple of posts about how I like to display my art :
Art Display : Beauty is in the eye of the beholder which talks about how beauty may well be in the eye of the beholder, and what we all like or dislike about art is the same – individual and personal choice, and also how display plays a part in this too.
and
What a difference a frame makes! how displaying in a frame can make a difference to the look and feel of a piece of art.

What people are saying about Art In Wax

The feedback I have received recently about my paintings such as ……

“Paintings has just arrived , and they are absolutely beautiful – the photos don’t do them justice”

“The paintings arrived yesterday and they are gorgeous. So vibrant and you just don’t see the texture in the photos. Fabulous!”

“Got the painting and it is so beautiful. The colours are fabulous and the texture is lovely. It’s really so different from anything I’ve seen before”


…. just goes to show that when looking online on our wonderful computers we can not see the true beauty in some types of art online. I personally feel this is especially true when looking at Encaustic paintings, as part of the beauty comes from the sheen of the wax that can not be captured to its fullness in a photograph. The texture can also look clumsy online whereas in real life it is often much more subtle and gentle and yet the colours more bold and vibrant at times.

New Painting : Country Stream

Country Stream is a brand new painting from me …… hot off the iron so to speak!

It is approximately 10 x 8 inches in size, look how different it looks from the plain photograph to showing it mounted and displayed on a easel to double mounted and framed in a slightly fancy edged frame.
Original Landscape Painting

It just goes to show ……

Even just showing them displayed in a different way can make a difference – would you agree?

Have you seen an encaustic wax painting in real life – they do look different than online photographs.
