Into the Blue


IMG_1034 2These were painted with acrylic paints on 7×5″ canvas boards, with acrylic gloss to finish. Using the same techniques as for my Deep Sea paintings, I started in an abstract style whilst trying to achieve texture & movement from brush strokes. Choosing vibrant colours I worked into it and then emphasised underwater shapes with decorative details using Posca pens.

The frame is preloved, sanded and freshly painted using Annie Sloan’s Neopleonic Blue chalk paint, which I felt matched the painting better than the plain pine it was before. I used a few coats of dark wax over the blue to mute the colour.

This piece is available to buy from Design@44 shop, Sadler Gate, Derby.
