Experimenting with the same image

 August. I'm am going next week for a week long class in Encaustic,
 the instructor is Susan Fisher: http://fisherencaustic.com/ 
 In Iconography, Encaustic is one of the earliest mediums and the pictures I have posted here are two of my works adapted from a Madonna and Christ child, 6th century encaustic icon at St Catherine's Monastery in the Sinai.  The colour photo is acrylic with layers of clear acrylic gel between paint applications. I was trying to get an encaustic look, after next week I should have a better idea of the actual encaustic process.
