Winternight Encaustic Waxart by Villa-Chinchilla Winternight Encaustic Waxart by Villa-Chinchilla
As ususal I've created this picture by ironing hot molten
wax onto a special sealed paper by using an encaustic iron.

The leaves of the tree I made by dabbing hot liquid wax
onto the card with a paper tissue.

But after scanning the picture I decitad to invert the colors
by usigng a small programm called IrvanView. Also I added
the castle and stars by copying them from another of my
wax-art pictures.

I rather like the result =D

this just looks like a negative of your indian summer with a city thrown in the background.

Yes =D
Just as I've already wrote in my comment,
as you surely have noticed while reading it closely ;)
I've inverted the colors of my picture after scanning + added the city.

Ich möchte mich herzlich für den Fav + schönen Kommentar zu meinem Bild bedanken *yeah*

*Dich gaaaaaaaaaanz liiiiieb knuuuuuuuddel*

Die Ideen entstehen ganz spontan beim Bügeln, denn Vormalen oder so geht ja nicht denn es wird alles mit einer Schicht Wachs gleichmäßig überzogen und konkrete Vorstellungen umzusetzen geht dabei logischerweise ebensowenig oder nur sehr begrenzt. Alles ist im wesentlichen dem Gefühl des Moments und dem Zufall überlassen :hug:

Not many artists can invert the colors and have it still look good, but you my dear can and that's just another reason why your work is so special. I love the placement of the tree and the stars stand out so beautifully.
