The striking contrast between the bright orange sunset & deep turqouise blue waters of the Indian Ocean inspired me to create this bold, abstract painting. It will bring vibrancy and a pop of colour to any living room, dining room or hallway.
The process used to create these is through a layering technique. I first apply texture paste to build areas of thick, raised texture. I then use thin layers of paint to build up the different colours and create glazed effects. Each layer is painted and left to dry. I use a combination of brushes and pallette knives to create the various effects.
I never know what the final outcome will be - I choose a limited colour pallette and work from there. The anticipation is exciting and the results sometimes surprising.
