Project ENCAUSTIC

Encaustic is the oldest painting technique (over 5000 years old), which is also known as the technique for Fayum mummy portraits.

Painting technique: hot wax with resolved soft color pigments on wood panels.

I started this project in 2013 and used it primarily for landscapes: sea, waterfalls, mountains, and sceneries. With this technique, it is possible to transmit the deep and extensive texture of the natural elements.

The artworks do not require any special caretaking. They are light and sunray resistant. 

Sizes: 100x100 cm, 80x80 cm, 70x100 cm, 60x80 cm, 50x50 cm
