In between the encaustic experimenting I was working on a couple of pieces on paper. This piece had an unexpectedly autumnal sort of pink when I came back and looked at it again. I meant to just make a toned-down pink but it feels like a fall color to me.
I bought some 300 lb. hot press watercolor paper on sale and I really like that ironing on the image transfers is less likely to warp it. The other pieces usually came back to being pretty flat but this is even smoother. And obviously it's less prone to buckling when it's wet since I don't like to have to stretch the paper.
