This is a custom commissioned piece that was made to order. This piece has cool blues and greys and is contrasted with warm gold and orange tones, which are complimentary colors. The painting process usually begins with a movement or a motion I want the canvas to take on as I begin to paint. I mark out the general flow of the piece and begin layering. My strokes begin thick and coarse and slowly move to soft strokes, and thinned layers to finish. I hope you enjoy seeing some of the process as much as I do. This piece is called Bold Cold, it’s 30″x40″ acrylic and gold leaf on canvas. Pin the photos you like!
