An iron and some wax

I decided to have a play today with some wax and my travel iron been as I've just bought a book called Encaustic Art: How to paint with wax by Michael Bossom.  This technique is called geometric abstract lines, drawing lines using the baseplate of the iron.

This one is monochrome where I was just practising the four basic techniques, but I like how it came out.

Then I got brave and decided to have a go at a bit of a landscape.

Then I decided to introduce a few more colours.

And then I did another one.
