Wax on Wednesdays Encaustic Painting Rainy Day Color Burst !


When those slumps come around in creative energy , 
one of my favorite things to do is create more colors ! 
Sometimes its the search for that one special color I am yearning to see that inspires and  sparks those creative juices all over again. 
This is true for me not only in encaustic, but also in oil, acrylic , and water color endeavors as well. 
Mixing and discovering , playing and exploring, 
in color. 


I sometimes sit and stare longingly at the wall of  wonderful commercial tubes and jars of colors at the art store, and or course have the urger to load it all in my hand cart. But, usually I stop myself and instead choose 1 to 3  colors that I can create several of the hues I am most in the mood for at the time.  It can be a dark palette, neutrals ,or  the search for the perfect "blue " . Sometimes its bright happy bursts in my palette that  Im in search of .   The journey of searching for that palette can be satisfying , rewarding , creatively productive. 
Creating the encaustic colors just takes longer :)
The slow process becomes meditative . The end result exciting ! 

 My favorite  encaustic tool for the last year or so  ?

This Catalyst blade !
