Artwork description:

"Dreaming" is a painting I created inspired by beautiful nature as fantasy and reality....!

This piece depicts red bearded irises which are rare and the most beautiful of them all. Birds, flowers and butterflies all harmoniously interact with each other.

This painting has been created using a series of various techniques. I started out by stretching re-claimed canvas over a stretcher frame. "Re-claimed" I hear you ask! I was given some quality large canvases with a layer of acrylic spray paint on it which has been incorporated into the painting as if being recycled. I then proceeded to paint in layers. I have used printmaking techniques to achieve pattern on the dress of the figure and gradually built up layers of semi-opaque and opaque oil paint for detail and depth of colour richness. I have also worked in small areas adopting an abstract mark-making method using the oil in various thicknesses.

The title for this piece came to me through the process and how I have achieved the overall end result to look dream-like.

Materials used:

oil paint, acrylic spray paint
