The Daily Paintings of Don Gray
Hi Don,I really enjoy the encaustic paintings you're posting. The wax/paint texture gives the images great depth. What kind of brushes are you using and how do you clean them? Not that I need to experiment in a new medium, I'm still trying to figure out oils and acrylics.Rick
so luminous! I appreciate your series even more given how the drought has severely toned down our landscape. What a divine tribute to autumn, Don. Thanks so much.
Thanks a lot, Rick. I use mostly regular natural bristle brushes, flats and sometimes brights. The paint is stiffer with wax, so soft synthetics don't seem to work as well. Cleanup with odorless mineral spirits and soap and water.
So appreciated, Marilyn--thanks. Yes, what a drought and heat wave you've had! And the fires--terrible! Glad you're OK.
Perhaps my favorite of your fragile beauties. Wonderful translucence and a great sense of tissue-thin brittleness.Really appreciate your run-down on cold wax encaustic, too.
Thank you, Shirley.
