Acrylic paint and archival markers on stretched canvas, with slimline pine sealed frame.

Description

'Renewal' was painted during a very creative burst of inspiration in 2016. The title refers not only to the natural signs of renewal in the landscape, such as rainfall (suggested here in dabs and streaks of paint), but also to my own creative processes, acting as a metaphor.
The Adelaide Hills landscape was my initial starting point in this work. This work is typical of my intuitive approach to composition, colour and mark-making: I like to allow the work to develop quite organically, editing as I go, and as a result, a variety of underpainting is apparent, including work with archival pens. My expressive approach to painting is shown in loosely applied glazes resulting in drips and layers of paint.
As with all my paintings, I aim to create works which are open to interpretation and your own personal associations.
I think of the colour orange (one of my favourite colours!) as the ultimate 'renewal' symbol, it just feels light and energetic, and this hue dominants the palette, yet is softened by pastel pinks, greens and contrasting blues. The painting is varnished, ready to hang with D-Hooks/wire, and framed in a simple pine frame, making it suitable for all modern interiors.
As a professional artist, I only ever use the very best archival artist materials, ensuring your investment will last more than a lifetime.
