Artwork Description

Oil painting of a TIE Fighter‚ the little 'bad guy' ships in the Star Wars films. The paintwork is lustrous and impasto - my aim was to paint in the style of my favourite contemporary Australian painters‚ Nicholas Harding and Guy Maestri. You can see the brushstrokes in the detail photos. In sections‚ the paint is raised from the canvas up to 5mm. The sky is a warm blend of ivory black and burnt umber. The spacecraft is white‚ greys (from ivory black)‚ buff and deep red in sections. The painting has movement and energy‚ and should appeal to fans of Star Wars‚ and fans of bold painting.
