Shades of Gold
1 in stock
“Shades of Gold” came from a woodland close to my home in the Peak District. I love working with tones of turquoise, copper and gold. Turquoise is such an optimistic colour and is revered by many cultures as health giving and hopeful. The copper tones compliment the turquoise beautifully.
An original artwork, one of a kind, this painting has been created with high quality acrylic paints on deep edged canvas. I begin with observation of the place making notes and taking photographs to work from in the studio. From these beginnings I work intuitively, painting some base layers with a brush and then impasto techniques layer on layer applied with a palette knife. Harnessing optical mixing techniques employed by the impressionists and some of the methods of the old masters such as scumbling and glazing. I continue working until the painting reaches a natural conclusion. The result is a contemporary painting, which lies somewhere between abstraction and realism. The painting continues round the sides, a frame is not needed and it is ready to hang.
