Wax on Wednesdays Encaustic Painting Finger Painting Landscape with R and F Pigment Sticks

I love the first layers of a painting just exploring with color. 

This  week another finger painted abstract impressionistic landscape 
done all with R and F pigment sticks. 

There are several brands of oil paint sticks out there to explore

R and F
Windsor Newton

are the ones I have used and there may be others out that I have yet to discover . 
The R and F are the softest. This helps especially if you are working quickly on
a newly fused layer . The harder oil sticks may dig into the surface a bit if 
the wax is still tender.  
If the wax surface has hardened it is easier to add the other brands into the mix.
Tube oil paints can also be used . 
Just let the linseed oil soak out on a paper towel over night.
