Muted & peaceful landscape. This is an entry in the Liquitex/ArtFinder Muted Collection.
The beauty of Isle of Skye cannot be described and cannot be painted. This painting is a try, just a try...
The colours of this particular painting are very difficult to photograph. In general, it is often difficult to get blue colours photographed in the absolute right shades and nuances.
This photo you see on your screen right now is pretty close to the look of my painting; however, the colours in the left corner are maybe slightly more glowing and intense: very light pinkish and some to the right are very light yellowish with a touch of yellow ochre.
The sky does have the most beautiful and fresh light blue colour, and the mountains show the same colour but are a smidgen darker. The mountains and the sky don't have much similarity with each other. The mountains are bluish, the sea is greenish. Some of the mountains, to the right, do have very light purples too.
In front of the farthest mountains are darker blue hills. This is a very beautiful blue, somewhat darker and more intense than the mountains in the distant. In front of the blue hills, you see some greens and reddish yellows, which run into darker browns of the ragged seashore.
You can also observe some sandy places between the stones of the shoreline.
The sea itself is greenish-bluish-teal-turquoise. In the right corner, there where my sign is visible, there I've used some pinkish purples too.
The high quality canvas is professional stretched, medium grain linen, and it's primed four times. Painted with high quality, artist grade acrylics and varnished to protect the artwork.
Although the sides of the frame are painted with the colours of the painting, and the artwork is ready to hang, I still would recommend to frame it.
My certificate of authenticity will be included.
