About this artwork
A floral exploration using a mix of acrylic paint and I was quite excited to experiment with some oil pastel sticks to add another interesting textural element to the artwork. I will definitely be using them again as I do like seeing the linear elements within the artwork.
I begin with choosing my colour palette which gives me an insight into the mood of the painting right away. I then start to layer the acrylic paint, more often than not I'm working from left to the right of the canvas. (Some people have commented how unusual this process is, I see it as completely normal). Building up the colours as I go, I use complementary colours to create the depth and contrast to the artwork. I also love to show movement which comes from exaggerating the sweeping movement of the brush as I paint. This forms a lovely organic feel, which enhances my love for depicting nature in my work.
The painting has been created on artist quality 100% cotton canvas and finished with a double coat of UV resistant gloss varnish, protecting the longevity and enhancing the vibrancy of the colours.
The sides of the canvas have been painted and is a continuation of the painting, so that the image wraps around the edges.
Your painting will be hand signed on the front and back, with its title written on the rear of the canvas. You will also receive a certificate of authenticity.
