’Through a looking glass’
This floral painting looks like a scene from a children’s story. It looks like looking through a looking glass, or a round window into an overgrown garden. Maybe like a little hobbits home, or the view Alice saw after she fell down the rabbit hole. But then again, I have a wild imagination. I think this playful painting is a cheerful addition to any home.
The lovely golden shimmers gives it that little bit extra.
It is done on a round, gallery wrapped canvas. The flowers were painted with alcohol inks. The size is 30 inch or 75 cm.
In order for the inks to flow properly several layers of a special undercoat were added.
All art comes signed and with a certificate of authenticity.
The painting is finished with several layers of UV protection and varnish to help prevent fading.
Alcohol inks are highly pigmented, alcohol based inks. They can be used like other media like oils, acrylics and watercolors. By layering the inks, and by using different techniques, the artist can create a feeling of depth and flow. The thing that is different about these inks is how unpredictable they are, and to what extend one can control them. Guiding the inks takes a certain level of skill, but also the ability to accept their unruliness. I think that’s why I love them so much!
It is sprayed with several layers of varnish for protection.
