Weekend Work

These first two pieces 20 x 20cm
are the end result of the second picture in my last post
I am so loving the Xanthorrhoea resin
and have now extended this to using indigo, cutch and lac
more colours to come 

This beautiful piece is the result of spilling the xanth resin
and then just working into it
Both pieces finished with encaustic

'Dancing Fish'  20 x 20cm
Encaustic, fish scales and indigo oil paint
Such Fun 

WIPs 30 x 30cm
Indigo milk paint and xnathorrhoea resin
and pigments on traditional gesso
This one waits for wax

Working with the cruciform shape
Materials as above
More to come
+ Wax

The beginning of an abstract landscape
Wax will happen
and I am thinking maybe something
black and linear in the foreground

And an underpainting
who knows what might happen here
Next weekend when I get back in the studio.
