Midnight River

First this looked too twee and fairytale, so I added loads of black and now I can’t shake the feeling that this is some kind of fairy black market drop spot. “Meet me by the twinkle tree at midnight and don’t forget the goods.” said the wood fairy, adjusting his balaclava.

For my birthday today I got a starter set of Encaustic Art tools! That included the painting iron and coloured wax. I’ve never had so much fun getting to know a new painting style! These are my first ever encaustic paintings. Above is a mountain lake, and below a ship battles a sea monster in high waves. I think there’ll be many more as I get used to this new medium 😀
