Original Oil Painting - Finding Paradise - a blue bird of paradise in
Timid Lioncub ( Finger Painting)
This is an original impasto/textured painting where the Sunflowers are tangibly thick.
Completed in oils over an acrylic background and substrate on a box canvas ( mounting/framing not necessary ).
This piece, the subject of which is instantly recognisable and always appreciated will dominate and benefit from a featured position.
A simple but impressive statement piece which will always welcome new eyes if not similar conversation and be a welcome addition to any suitable wall/display of original art.
The size is significant being 150cm x 120cm ( 5ft x 4ft old money ).
Inspired by Van Gogh and based upon an initial water colour work by a colleague using knife and brush techniques over a multi-layered and partially visible under tones.
A true statement piece.
A large multi media impasto painting.
Influences was inspired by looking at abstract artists throughout the 20th Century from simple imagery to bold expression of both subject matter and form wherein I produced a painting which started by throwing swathes of impasto acrylic direct from the tuttle against a yellow grounded box canvas & criss-crossing these strokes of flying paint and letting them settle and harden where they lay.
That made a lattice work of marks which I then painted in, over and in between and added acrylic paint and layered over the top alkyd oils and Sennelier pastels ( a wonderful medium ) all eventually sealed.
Influences are there to be seen or found, I had in mind Kandinsky., Picasso, Cesar Manrique, Mr & Mrs Delaunay, Miro, Klimt, Klee, Rothko, Dali, Hoffman and many others.
I thoroughly enjoyed making this original painting and it deserves a good home.
