Painting with an encaustic pen is a quiet meditation on process and discovery. It favors patience and deliberateness. The most appealing aspect of this is the slow build-up of wax, stroke by stroke, layer upon layer, adding colors bit by bit and carefully mixing them directly on the panel. This method lends itself especially well to working on a small surface. For example, the encaustic painters of Greece who developed this process seldom made pictures larger than the average head. Suitable for all levels.
