Here is my latest fantasy painting. This is a encaustic artwork 9 X 12 on birchwood panel. Original artwork unframed, mixed media.
This encaustic painting I call "Merpeople" , The definition for Merpeople
Merfolk or merpeople are legendary water-dwelling human-like beings. They are attested in folklore and mythology throughout the ages in various parts of the world.
Female merfolk may be referred to as mermaids, although in a strict sense mermaids are confined to beings who are half-woman and half-fish in appearance. Male merfolk are called mermen. Depending on the story, they can be described as ugly or beautiful. This painting is a tribute to the famous illustrator "Edmund Dulac". Who was one of the best illustrators of the 19th century.
Encaustic painting, also known as hot wax painting, involves using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. The liquid or paste is then applied to a surface—usually prepared wood, though canvas and other materials are often used. The simplest encaustic mixture can be made from adding pigments to beeswax, but there are several other recipes that can be used—some containing other types of waxes, damar resin, linseed oil, or other ingredients. Pure, powdered pigments can be used,or Oil paints.
