A Journey to Abstraction
The paintings in this series "A Journey to Abstraction" explores the beginning of my personal experiment from a structured realist approach using Soft Pastel to a more fluid, tactile, abstract sensibility when painting with Encaustic Wax.
Soft pastel and encaustic wax both have a unique and very different applications. To illustrate I will hang the two styles of painting together for a visual comparison of the materials and techniques.
As I worked with the encaustic wax, I was forced to release control of long held ideas, styles and techniques. It has brought me back to the reason why I chose an artist's path. The pure joy of creating.
