Sailing : A Seascape

Painting Boats in hot wax – new video demonstration

This new seascape painting started out as a demonstration for my youtube channel, following a suggestion from a fellow encaustic painter Dallas, of Abounding Treasures in Canada who saw one of my boating seascape paintings on the Etsy website and having already watch a couple of my encaustic art video demonstrations, commented that it would be good to see how I painted a boat in hot wax.

I have been waiting for an idea to come for a new video, we have such fun making these short films but thinking of a subject is difficult so when this suggest came I thought I would run with it and this is the resulting painting.

How I paint a sail boat ……

Watch me paint on You Tube

You can watch me paint part of this picture on my youtube channel : Sailing Boats.

We could only show part of the painting in this demonstration, which is nearly 6 minutes in length and one of the longer films we have made. It took a lot longer to complete the painting than would have been practical to film. Many of my paintings take several hours to complete depending on the size and detail involved.

This demonstration is based on the sail boat part of the picture, I then added the shadows giving the reflection of the sails in the water, added a small dingy to the foreground and some grassy beach as the land. I used some bronze and gold wax in the beach which gives just a little more shimmer to the painting.

Adding detail

It is always hard to know where to stop with a painting I find, I could have carried on with this picture, adding detail to the horizon and creating more depth to the water and waves, perhaps adding some birds in the sky or a fence in the foreground, but it is also sometimes wise to stop and keep it simple …….
