Waterfall

Waterfall, Encaustic by Joan Pechanec, 11 X 14 x 2 1/2”$325  I chose to use encaustic for this semi-abstract image of a waterfall. I love the way the layers of wax create a misty effect on the cool greenish-blue of the water. I added thin rice papers and iridescent lights to create additional texture and surface reflection. I was interested in the way the negative spaces with the smooth sheen of the wax are juxtaposed with the thick textures. And, of course, the encaustic wax layers always create a lovely, mysterious mood.
