9X29 Encaustic on Panel
I started this thinking I would paint on a pure white background....this is where I ended up, thus the title...

I also added a couple of close ups so you can see the texture.

C and C welcomed

Spottters this is beautiful. It seems very illuminated in the photo. Does your white background have any thing to do with that or is that the way the pigments would appear normally? Very appealing to me and I like the size/shape as it might make it more practical for some buyers looking for that piece to fit that place in their home! Well done again! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Great choice of canvas size for this one! This looks like a spot light is on it or there is illumination from the back. Is it that vibrant in person and how did you do it?

This would cheer up a dull space in a home, especially when well illuminated.


thanx 4 sharing, again

Thanks for the comments David and Jon

I did take the picture with a light shining down from above, however it is bright IRL. The white coat I put down as my first layer of color does have that effect of lightening the whole piece. You can see a lot of the natural wood grain through the wax as well, so it has a very natural feel.

Jon I work in layers, creating texture and fusing the colors. I am also using oil pigment stick to get the colors to pop and have more life.

this one has a very glossy finish.

thanks again for the comments

Thought I had commented...

I am really diggin the size/dimensions here. The black around a few of the circles work for me as well. Also, thanks for sharing a close up photo-- never really knew the texture of encaustic.

Thanks for the comments - appreciate the feedback

Cory actually there is no black in any of these that I have been working on. It is dark blue, but it does appear to be black from far away and on this picture.....
