I've been working on this painting incrementally with oils. I got some comments that the figure in the foreground looks like me, so I changed it, I'm not trying to make a self portrait. She's holding a shell that I found in Ireland. Standing at the edge of her world looking out.
These two represent the series of four that I'm working on. I am doing buildings on transparent paper to show the oil painting once sealed on with wax. The faces and backgrounds are painted with oil using a lot of cold wax medium. Then sealed with clear encaustic wax and clouded by a building drawing. Old structures with souls.
While I have been painting, my little artist has been busy with inks, acryilcs, watercolors, water soluble crayons and colored pencils.
