"In the Field" 6x6 in oil and cold wax on gessoboard
This was a painting I did on my painting trip to Washington Island in Door County, Wisconsin. I went out to a small airfield. There were planes taking off and landing on the grass runway. I liked the little red "windsock" that was off in the distance. This painting was done in oil paint mixed with cold wax as the medium and applied with a palette knife. After the painting was complete I heated it with a heating element to give the painting an encaustic feeling.
