A Mixed Media, three dimensional sculpture painting,

Description

Michaelmas Cay National Park is located on the world famous Great Barrier Reef. This is one of my favorite spots on the Reef, and l never visit this area without seeing many turtles. I find turtles seem so indifferent to people swimming around them, and it always amazes me how close a wild creature like this allows you to get. This painting was inspired by one of those encounters with a turtle at Michaelmas, that seemed to be in search.

This piece was done on white piece of Perspex. It is made up of paper Mache, sand, and foam, with the turtle being sculpted from clay and hand painted in oils. The background water has been airbrushed in acrylic. It is coated with Chroma Finish Varnish, which is providing a non-tacky protective coating, that also protects against mold.

“Searching Michaelmas“ has been professionally framed to capture the mood of the artwork by Tropical North Framing Gallery Cairns.
Inspired by the natural world, this Fine art collection is a combination of many materials and Mediums. The works are predominately 3 dimensional, mostly created using recycled materials ranging from cardboard, electrical wire, newspaper, wool, fabrics, plaster, clay and oil and acrylic paint. Oil paint is Petra’s main painting medium, but she is always experimenting with different mediums to achieve that perfect effect, striving for a strong, secure and tidy finish.
