Artist's description:

ORIGINAL IMPASTO PALETTE KNIFE OIL PAINTING ON STRETCHED CANVAS, SIZES : 35X25 cm // 14x10 inch ( depth of the canvas : 2 cm // 0.80 inch ).

Oia sunset, Santorini sunset ... there is something palpable about it's breathtaking beauty ... I felt I can touch the sun when I was there... I painted this work with this feeling in my soul - that I was there, where, if I wanted, I'd can touch the sun.

''ABSTRACT SANTORINI OIA SUNSET'' is a modern impressionist, abstract impasto palette knife oil painting by ANA MARIA EDULESCU.

I was inspired to paint this work by the amazing sunset scene from Oia village in Santorini island, Greece. I am in love with the Santorinian village named Oia with it's bright white houses, it's blue churches' domes and the stunning deep blue of the Aegean sea.

First time I visited the Greek island Santorini in 2010 and this summer ( in June 2017 ), after 7 years, I was again there to let my soul and eyes get inspiration of the beauty of this place.

This palette knife oil painting is part of my series ''Abstract cityscapes''. I started this series of abstract cities years ago it is a recurrent theme for me. I love to paint abstract cityscapes under bold, vivid, sometimes tormented skies - yellow, pink, purple, orange, red, blue, turquoise, even green skies, sometimes skies ''inhabited'' by huge sun or full moon...

When I paint an abstract cityscape, I try to capture the essence of the subject, most an inner impression, a personal perception ... The city is not rendered, but suggested into an abstract manner by splashes of vibrant colors and impasto palette knife strokes.

Materials used:

oil paints, canvas, palette knives
