February Dusk

Quinn_Regina_1

There’s a special kind of light in the northern mountains at dusk in the late winter. Continuing my attempts at capturing large spaces in tiny paintings, this 6″ by 6″ mixed media piece started with a watercolor wash coated with encaustic medium. Then layers of encaustic paints and just a touch of oils with beeswax.

I’ve been working on very small paintings lately. The little 5 by 7 winter landscape features a watercolor layer coated with layers of encaustic medium and then oil paints mixed with beeswax and linseed oil.
