Connemara Lakes


Enveloped in vibrant hues of aqua, this encaustic painting of Connemara Lakes transports viewers to the picturesque landscapes that have captivated artists and poets for generations. The Irish poet and playwright, Oscar Wilde, beautifully captured the essence of this untamed terrain, describing it as “savage beauty” – a phrase that perfectly encapsulates the spirit of this awe-inspiring painting.

With the ancient encaustic painting technique, I have used molten pigmented wax to create depth and texture, imbuing the artwork with a tangible sense of movement and life. Each stroke and layer captures the essence of Connemara Lakes, reflecting its pristine waters, rugged coastlines, and lush greenery.

Through the mastery of encaustic art, “Connemara Lakes” embodies the harmonious coexistence of land and sea, inviting you to immerse yourself in its breathtaking beauty. Whether you seek a piece of Ireland’s essence for your home or a meaningful addition to your art collection, “Connemara Lakes” will undoubtedly become a cherished and compelling focal point, reminding you of the majesty of nature’s artistry.

What is encaustics?

Encaustic is a Greek word meaning “to heat or burn in” (enkaustikos). Heat is used throughout the process, from melting the beeswax and varnish to fusing the layers of wax.

Encaustic consists of natural bees wax and dammar resin (crystallized tree sap).

What are the care instructions?

This encaustic painting needs to breathe and if the surface looks in any way dull, it can be buffed up with a soft material e.g nylon stockings.

This will bring up a shine to the surface.
