Encaustic work on paper by Alex Wilhite

My years of experience in traveling throughout the world guide my inspiration about the value of color, which changes every hour as everyday. My perception of color is the value of the primary colors changing into varieties of colors as “Meditation Myth”. High or strong colors which define outline and strong contrast are both incorporated into my own style of painting. I am drawn to follow the value of nature’s colors as they change from sunrise to sunset. This requires the employment of homemade paint from dust to create my vision of art.
