Artwork Description

Oil Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

Inspired by botanical shapes and shadows on the front fence.  The starting point for the piece was studying the reduced shapes created by shadows on a white fence. These large paintings always start out with two or three quickly applied layers of acrylic paint that outline an overall composition but can also be easily edited. Often these early layers are completely obscured in the final work and the colour palette can shift dramatically too. However often small parts of these base layers remain and help to build complexity and depth in the overall final piece.

Two or three layers of oil paint are then applied at a much slower pace and with intervals for drying and contemplation in between. These layers become increasingly thick and I have always found the quality of oils is impossible to emulate and they give a richness of colour, a lustre and texture that is unrivalled by other materials. 

This is a large bold painting and would make a striking feature in any space.   It has gallery wrapped edges (meaning the artwork continues around the edge of the stretchers) so it can be hung as is or framed.
