- Encaustics and Oil
This draft horse is an oil and encaustic painting. An encaustic painting is achieved by melting wax and varnish over a hot plate and slowing applying it while melting it with a hot gun. It's very time consuming but rewarding. I then paint my image on top of the encaustic.
I used to live in Sedona, Arizona and my friend had a rescue for draft horses and I took many photos of them for future paintings.
Framed size: 9 1/4" x 13 3/4" x 2" with a black wooden frame. No glass or plexi.
