Seascape encaustic card

The sea and sky in this card in real life are much more aqua coloured but neither scanner nor camera would pick out the colours correctly.  I normally do the rocks in ponds with dragonflies flying around but this time I wanted it to look more like the sea so I added some birds (seagulls).

Encaustic landscape card

I tried to scan just the painting but the scanner didn’t pick up the neon colours so I put it into the card and took a digital photo instead and these colours look almost like the real painting.  You still don’t see the subtle shading but the colours are mostly there.
