Winter Trees

Winter Trees
16 x 20
Encaustic Beeswax
Judy Vars
This was painted with encaustic beeswax, layers and layers of waxy paint create the luscious snow texture. This technique known as accretion makes this type of encaustic painting a little unstable, so it requires a little extra care, so don't throw it around and bang it up against other things or put it in direct sunlight or anywhere over 160 degrees!
