Following Your Inner Muse | Jacqueline Drake

Following Your Inner Muse

Following Your Inner Muse represents the time when you just have to let go of all expectations and standards and just follow your inner guidance.This painting is a pure encaustic painting on wood. I made the pigments using a recipe of damar resin, beeswax and raw pigments to create the vibrant colors.

This mixture is kept at a constant temperature on a skillet so it will stay in a molten state. Each brush stroke is then fused together with a heat source which creates a smooth finish. When the painting is cooled, it is then buffed with a buffing wheel to a high sheen.
