Encaustic Bird & Birch Paintings...

I have been studying Birch trees lately. How they look on a snowy day and the various colors and textures in the bark.
Encaustic painting lends itself to the extreme texture and layers that make up the trunk and branches of a Birch Tree.
I first worked on the forest with the Cardinal. My next piece to tackle was the Pileated Woodpecker on a Birch trunk. Both pieces are Encaustic and are 12"x24" on cradled Birchboard.
