Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

In the studio this week at Art In Wax :: Posted by: Hazel on November 8th, 2013

In The Studio @ Art In Wax This Week

I’ve been busy in the studio this week at Art In Wax.

This is a new wax on wood painting, 4 by 4 inches square, lots of layers of wax for a lovely smooth glass like look then some layers of colour for the flower which has more texture as I have carved gently into it ….. I also painted the sides of this panel to see how that effect looks ……

Today @ Art In Wax

I thought it might be fun to take a few pictures this morning before I get started …..

This is where I am working today

This is where I am working today, not going to be painting today, although lots to do! You can see all the pots of wax on the hot plate, which is not switched on so the wax is solid.

I received my order of supplies this week too, so have lots of stock now, new colours of R & F Handmade Paints ; Alizarin Orange, Alizarin Crimson, Egyptian Violet, Viridian plus lots of panels to paint on to ……..

Which is my next job, masking and preparing the panels with Encaustic gesso, ready to start on some new ideas I have for paintings ….

Studio Art In Wax :: Posted by: Hazel on December 1st, 2011

My Studio – Where I create Art In Wax

Up until recently I painted at my office desk, we have a web design and a decorating business so the office is a busy place at times, I was limited for space and time, as when I am painting with encaustic wax I tend to spread out and make a bit of a mess!

A place to paint and make as much mess as I like!

About six weeks ago, mid October, we decided to create me a dedicated studio work space, it is still a work in progress, for example I currently have my sockets sitting on the desk, until I settle in and decide where best to have things put permanently, I have also inherited the decor, but I can live with the colour for now and the window gives good lighting.

I have had a tidy up this morning and thought it might be fun to show my studio, people often ask me how I create such details into my paintings and now we have the studio set up we hope to take some video for us to show here and on youtube of me painting. But for now here is where I paint and create my “Art In Wax”.

A lot going on ……

As you can see I have a lot going on, I don’t have all the irons out all the time, it depends what I am planning to paint. I do like to have everything to hand and to have some of my paintings around me, these change all the time, depending on my mood, and I tend to like the most recent pictures best, until there is a more recent one of course!

New Exhibitions Added To Art In Wax

New Exhibit Bottle
This week sees the launch of a new page on the Art In Wax website. Exhibitions is a new page that will be a unique space on the website for us to show different paintings and pictures not yet featured anywhere else.

In the tradition of an exhibition they will be exhibits based on a theme and will be either painting in wax by myself or photographic art by Adrian Rayfield. The length of the exhibits will depend on the theme and whats coming up next …. so a place to book mark for future reference.

The First Exhibit

Visit the exhibit now to view “An Explosion of Colour” a series of photographs taken in a studio setting using off camera flash lighting (strobist) set up. The bottles of coloured liquids have been lit to give a vibrancy and real WOW factor.
