70 x 70cm
Mixed media using acrylics, watercolours, pastels and gold leaf
Inspired by my love of travel and a constant urge to explore, this piece is perfectly summed up by this short verse from my husband:
"As I walked beside the turbulent sea, the afternoon sunlight playing on the waves, a distant peninsular appeared briefly from the depths of the horizon's haze. "That's where I need to be", said the traveller inside of me. I looked again and imagined myself there, looking back towards where I stood. "That's where I need to be", said my imagination. And the traveller was satisfied. "
This original artwork uses a unique combination of acrylic and watercolour paints and pastels with gold leaf on a 3.5cm deep, gallery wrapped canvas. It is protected from dust and UV light by a thin layer of varnish. The painting continues around the sides of the canvas, giving this artwork a highly unique and contemporary finish. Framing is not required.
