This abstract painting represents a wild ocean, that washed away the shore after a big storm. Nature took over, in all its wild beauty! There is a lot happening on this canvas, wild motion and texture. It is a bold statement piece, I think it can add a lot of interest to a space without being overbearing.
The colors on this abstract painting are really vibrant.
This is a large abstract painting on a hexagonal canvas. The shape of the canvas makes it stand out, it’s really unique. The size of the canvas is 36 x 31 inch, or 90 x 78 cm. The canvas is gallery wrapped.
To protect these lovely colors this painting has been covered with several layers of varnish. The canvas is heavy duty and the paints are highly pigmented. There are strokes of metallic paints in there, as well as loads of texture.
The techniques used in this artwork are fluid painting and palette knife painting. Fluid painting is a technique where one pours on the paint and allow it to freely flow and blend. Sometimes I will guide the paint a bit more, to accomplish a flow and composition that I am happy with. This type of painting usually has many layers to accomplish depth and detail. Sometimes I use different mediums and additions to get certain effects.
I used palette knifes to add impasto paints as well, to accomplish texture.
Texture paste was used for additional interest.
To protect these lovely details this painting has been covered with several layers of varnish. The canvas is heavy duty. The sides of this painting are painted.
I have not attached a wire at the back because this painting can be hung in several ways, so I'll leave that up to the collector. I have found you can easily hang it on the frame, so a wire isn't really necessary.
I understand buying art online can be somewhat daunting, since you cannot see it up close and personal. To help make things easier I post as many pictures as I can, and try to make a video of each painting. I also offer appointments for people who are able to come by here in my home. If that is not a possibility I do collectors the opportunity to send an artwork back, if it turns out it doesn't quite fit in their home.
