Using previous work as a starting point

I have been painting on canvas with acrylic paint but have not tried encaustic so I want to redo these painting in encaustic wax in smaller versions and practice the techniques of creating  water plant forms out of wax mediums.

This will be the second pickerel painting that I will do in encaustic.  I will try to practice getting a water like texture onto the surface with different thicknesses of wax.
