encaustic – sugar hollow 7

i sure am taking my time about this painting.  today i went down and made up some very white blue paint and spread it over the sky reflections i’ve already put in.  i was very careful, again, not to burn holes in the white paint, and it stuck together wonderfully.  i anticipate putting a coat or two of pure wax on after this, and only then letting the dark burn thru.

but isn’t it pasty, and can you think it’s surface reflections?  i don’t know yet.  it keeps getting further from what i was envisioning.  i could end up scraping and otherwise attacking the surface if all else fails.  stay tuned.
