Grade 12 Encaustic Paintings (AVI4M)

Here are paintings that two of my grade 12 students recently completed as part of their portfolios.  Encaustic is heated wax.  Truthfully, I need to take some lessons to learn how to use the medium properly- these ladies learned from YouTube and then experimented with their own styles as well.  I can tell you from a bit of practice that it's harder than it looks! 
I can get lost in the layers and swirls of these paintings... I hope you do too!
