This morning’s reader feature was submitted by Laura, who shared her pretty DIY Garden Painting. This is an 8×10 encaustic mixed media painting on cradled wood board. Laura was inspired by the French Gardening book illustration circa 1859. She used this image along with several prints of botanical illustrations. She hand tears the images out and pieces them together in a cohesive way. Everything was adhered together with an encaustic medium / beeswax. There are several layers of wax that are then incised and filled with oil paint. Finally, she embellished the whole piece with a metallic shimmering powder.
