Art Description

Painting: Encaustic, Wax, Powered Pigments on Wood.

The arabesque is a form of artistic decoration consisting of "surface decorations based on rhythmic linear patterns of scrolling and interlacing foliage, tendrils" or plain lines, often combined with other elements.
Actually, the title came to me after I made the painting.
First, I covered the board with while milk paint to give an absorbent surface to hold the preliminary oil paint glazing that was covered by a smooth covering of encaustic, wax. paint.
Then, I used a hot pen, dipping it in clear, encasutic medium to build up the the textured patterns. I wanted the linear patterns to move gracefully across the surface. Over and over, I added more encasutic, a free form build up to produce the scrolling lines. I used no pattern or stencil.
Finally, I added a touch of gold to the texture, creating more interest and a glow.
