Rondure 1, mixed media encaustic, 36x36

Jo Moniz

I paint with primarily encaustic. Hot beeswax and damar resin form a sensual vehicle for pigment. I layer on the hot paint until the color composition is compelling. Sometimes I scratch through the layers to reveal some of the work history below. I also etch into the medium and deposit graphite or encaustic paint into the straight or curved lines to create visual separations of color and to add detail.
