Low Tide II
7.5" x 7.5" x 2"
The backbone of this piece is cotton fabric hand-dyed to provide a colorful background to the picturesque boats at Blue Rock, Nova Scotia.
Once the fabric ismounted to a wooden panel, multiple layers of encaustic medium are added. My original photographic image is printed onto a Japanese mulberry paper and embedded into the encaustic surface. Additional medium is applied which ensures the finished piece retains a luminescent quality.
