The creative process I worked through during this work required me to slow down to remembering of the Wonderful colours of Taupo Lake. After many layers of Encaustic Wax it started to come together with the layers of the lake colours and I really enjoyed the process which took time to enjoy and watch the Encaustic come alive for me.

Encaustic or hot wax painting is an ancient art form that predates oil painting, developed initially by the ancient Egyptians and used by both ancient Greek and Roman art. Hot beeswax, damar resin and colored pigments form a basis of this art medium. This natural base has dimensional and luminous qualities which has endless versatility. Encaustic paintings do not deteriorate with age as these paintings are extremely archival.
