I took a FCA workshop with Ken Bourassa on Encaustic painting. I wasn't sure I would like to work and paint with heated wax, but really enjoyed myself. Painting this way felt like fun playing and made me think of the games we played in wet sand at the beach.
I layered the board with different colours of tinted wax, one colour at a time and then drew into it with wet wax and paint to get the tic tac toe lines. I added sea shells, sand and more layers until I had the texture and look that I was after. This painting itself was like a game and you guessed...I won!
