Photo-Encaustic Journey Phases of One Creation

It started with a cell phone photograph. As a passenger, I've found a way to make the time pass. I've been working with a slow shutter app to make in-motion images.

After mounting the print to cradle board, I distressed it a bit with some sandpaper. One of the things I love about this process, is that it encourages the imperfect, and there's no such thing as a mistake.

Beginning to layer on the encaustic medium. Experimenting with dry brushing and different motions with the brush during application.

Let's make that color POP! Adding color to enhance the textures and the color. This was done with R&F pigment sticks. Just a little goes a long way, rubbed into the wax and fused with a bit of heat.

Maybe that was too much... backing it off some areas.

Yep, that's just about right.
