Painting flowers in hot wax

Video Demonstration : Encaustic Art

This latest video from Art In Wax show me painting in hot wax some summer flowers.
The flowers are based on a clematis style flower, we have many clematis coming into flower in our garden at the moment. Clematis come in many shapes and sizes and wonderful colours, we have three varieties ourselves with the small compact pink blooms coming early in May to larger white and a purple variety blooming as the summer progresses.

The flowers I have painted here are “in the style of” a clematis, with so many types to choose from this is my own interpretation, as with many of my paintings I consider the subject to be an impression of.


The film shows how the flower is painting in hot wax, and gives reference to the watercolour I painted a few days ago. I have recently rekindled my fondness for watercolors and using them in parallel with the wax is great fun.

See for yourself

The pictures below show what I’ve been working on in this subject. The watercolour I used as a reference in the video below is the pink one on the right and the center picture is done using watercolour pencils, which I find great to sketch with, the framed paintings are both Encaustic paintings and approximatley A5 in size and are for sale, contact me for details and availability.
