West Coast Sunset

 

I’m still working on the right “recipe” for vivid colours and cool effects in this fluid painting series. The method is quite hard to replicate and you just never know what the final results will be, because the paints continue to move about the canvas until dry. I’m not 100 percent happy with the results of this one. Some of the paints cracked so I won’t be using those brands again. But I do loooove the way the tree came to life! (I used tissue paper to create texture.)

The background trees dried a bit darker than I’d intended (they looked exquisite when wet).

 


 

UPDATE: See the updated version here. Someone saw this piece in my studio and loved it, cracks and all! He purchased it on the spot!
