|Out of the Night - 8" x 8" on wood panel|
And this morning the pause arrived. Parts of the rest of the composition are not completely scraped yet, but scraped enough to show up the contrast with the roughness of the Prussian blue.
I laid on the blue with no thought to brush marks as I would be scraping. Well, now I look at it and I find the roughness against the smooth appealing. I only wish I had planned the brush strokes.
And this is what fascinates me about encaustic. So many facets and possibilities lie within this medium that in the learning, doors keep opening and opening and opening. Reminds me of diving down into the Mandelbrot set--goes on forever.
I had planned to scrape this today, but now I honestly don't know what to do.
