Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Summer Holiday – painting challenge :: Posted by: Hazel on July 13th, 2014

Painting Challenge ; Summer Holiday Theme

In an online arts forum I am a member of one of the contributor suggested we had a little challenge and the topic of “Summer Holiday” was agreed upon. This was just a fun challenge between a few fellow artists but the only thing was that it was to be different from our normal style …… so no wax for me in the challenge!

Ice Cream

Nothing says summer holiday to me more than ice cream, it is my favorite summer treat.

My husband Adrian and I live on the South East Coast of England, in Southend on Sea. Which since the Georgian era has been a popular Seaside resort, and has the longest pleasure pier in the world.

So it seemed only fitting that as we live by the sea that I should choose an ice cream as my subject. I pondered what to paint it in, considered watercolors but I do love sketching with the elegant writer water soluble pen I bought recently so, that is what I did …… and the sketch below, on the right is the result, its is sketch and wash on a canvas board 7 x 5 inches.

And then for fun I painted a couple of ice cream cones in wax too ….. onto Gloss card one is A5 and the other a miniature ACEO.
