I was very excited to find original photos from my Busy City series from series from 2011. The copies I had been working with were shot in terrible light and had a real yellow cast to them. It was great to find the bright and cheerful original files.
Looking back on this much loved series, I also had the chance to reflect on how far I have come working with encaustic and can see all that I would do differently now. With this in mind, I am am looking forward to revisiting this series with fresh new works - to incorporate my acquired skills, techniques, and media experience.
These paintings were created before I began to really work with collaging, transfers, pigment sticks, metallics, inks, and pastels - all my current go to favourites.
It will be exciting to see what the new cities will look like and the evolution of myself as an artist. I will be sure to post about this journey here and over at Exploring Encaustic.
Watch this space for more :D
