This abstract painting has such a warm and inviting color palette. It reflects summer to me, sunshine, happiness, stunning sunsets and balmy nights.
I can just imagine myself on holidays, drink in hand, watching day turning into night. Kids having fun in the background. Laughter.
Maybe that's just because it's winter here, and I miss the warmer weather. But that's the awesome thing about abstract art. You can see all kinds of things in there! The gold in here is lovely, it will shimmer in the light!


This painting was painted using alcohol inks on Yupo paper. Yupo paper is a special synthetic paper, developed specifically for art. It is non porous, making it very easy for the inks to flow freely. It doesn't absorb fluids, therefor it doesn't buckle. It is very thick, and hard to rip.

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 finished with several layers of UV protection and varnish to help prevent fading.
