Acrylic with light impasto texture and satin (low sheen) finish on canvas


I already had an idea in mind to combine both my love for portraiture and modern art.

With my style in portraiture being way more conservative, I really wanted to bring a modern flair to it.

The reason I chose a crow with the specific coloured background really came down to timings with an exhibition that was pending at the Adelaide Oval..

I was inspired to create a painting that had both a crow and the clubs colours emblazoned over it.

The graphic showing an interior, proves that this isn't only for boys. Girls are now actively participating in Aussie rules football so there is every reason for me to display it in a room with a girly twist.

Mostly I colour the sides of the canvas with shades of charcoal grey to create a wonderful contrast to the painting itself, allowing it to pop!

All paintings come professionally presented with a Certificate of Authenticity. The rear of the canvas is backed with a sheet of craft paper, date stamped, hooked and wired ready to hang.

Utmost care and attention is given to the packaging of each painting which is firstly gift wrapped in paper and then bubble wrapped. New packaging is always used and extra protection is provided with an additional core flute layer secured internally to each face of the box. Each painting is padded within the box allowing no movement whatsoever.
