Got an idea to add a fire salamander to this one. Will likely add some realistic highlights, maybe, but I also like the flat design.
I have so much posting to catch up on!
I have a few pieces I feel are finally done or almost done. All are mixed media encaustic.
6 x 6 inches
Both are 8 x 8 inches.
These are pieces I now consider finished. Just gotta get official documentation photos taken. The first three are 4 x 4 inches.
The last couple of classes, we’ve begun modeling with light and dark values added to the local color to create more depth. So far, I’ve worked on the red cloth with both light and dark and am currently working on the darker cloth. Most of the dark cloth is in shadow, so I won’t be adding much light.
Working on my encaustics today. The apple is a laser transfer, and I plan on painting the branch, leaves, and possibly highlights on the apple in oil paint.
Did a laser jet transfer on the other one I’m working on, but I’m not sure I like the position. I think I’m gonna scrape the spider off and add one slightly bigger and a little more lower and left.
“Loki and Idun’s Apple” at the end of the night:
“Anansi” piece – spider resized & repositioned. I think this one looks much better:
