I did another 16: X 16″ encaustic painting today and I like the way it is going. Still wonder if I need to scrape down the surface a bit because in some areas the wax is a bit lumpy and I like to have a smooth surface. Looking at it my obsessive compulsive behaviour wants to make it more precise, no rough edges and solid shapes. I need to resist the temptation to always work on each shape to over kill the energy within the space of the shape. Not easy to do.
Here is the painting at this stage.
