Seashells scattered on the beach, and two starfish arm-in-arm, making their one pass thru the universe. This was meant to invoke the magic of shared love for each other & the ocean.
Done with a watercolor painting process referred to as "wet-on-wet". The paint is applied onto a wet canvas allowing magical things to happen as they mix & mingle in unexpected ways. Once dry, the painting is then enhanced with the liveliness of oil pastels to add additional texture & spontaneity.
A heavily textured layer of encaustic medium is then applied over the painting to protect it, and also to enhance its sculptural qualities. I encourage you to look at the close ups provided to get a better idea of how much additional beauty the encaustic wax adds to the piece. This one has a bit of ocean sand mixed in with the wax!
