What I imagine Gotham City would look like!!Acrylic and Encaustic on Canvas
abstract, blue, acrylic, urban, encaustic
Painter and amateur photographer, based on the South Coast of NSW.Colour is my inspiration and my joy.
what a wonderful imagination you have dear Alison,brilliant painting, so amazing are the colours, i love the light!fantastic work!!
It’s very colourful! Just out of interest, how much is acrylic and how much is encaustic?
Thanks Maria Louise M and K Bock for you comments.The sky and its reflection were underpainted in acrylic. The buildings were blacked out, and then I used mainly orange and red encustic to give them life. From there it was a mix of acrylic and encaustic – colouring, texturing…. adding reflections and lights, until I got the effect I was after.
The very bright colours – turpuoise, magenta, red, white, orange and yellow are encaustic. I find it has a lovely density which is gret when you need strong colour. I make my own wax base in muffin trsyd. Then I melt the result with pure pigment – this gives me the dense colour I need,
Maria asked the question I was going to ask! I think this is wonderful and a great mixed media success.
Thanks for the explanation. It’s an interesting mixture of media!
I love the rich texture and colour depth achieved with encaustic, but the more “traditonal” fantasy-style of encaustic work doesn’t appeal so much. I know combining encaustic with acrylic is unusual, but it works for me!! I’ve also covered a couple with a resin glaze – that seems to work just fine – and of course they shine as though under glass!!
