Coming Up For Air
160 W x 60 H x 4.5cm (2 x 80x60cm canvasses)
Artist pigment, Oil pastel, Acrylic, Paper on Canvas.
This beautifully dynamic piece with striking ultramarine pigment is attempting to reflect a mood of calm and peacefulness, a moment of just breathing in and out.
The painting has been built over many layers of paint. I dyed very thin, fine layers of special, tissue like paper and integrated them into the work. I enjoyed bold brush strokes and more detailed mark making in this piece. I mixed my own paint of blues and white using artist pigments. Oil bar and oil pastel strokes as well as fine pencil lines add movement to the work.
The diptych consists of two 80cm x 60cm canvasses.
The canvas has been painted around the edges in a complementary colour. Hooks and cord are attached at the back – the painting is ready for hanging.
The painting comes with a signed certificate of authenticity.
A light satin varnish has been applied to protect it against sunlight, dust and other environmental factors.
