'The world is undiluted. Use paint to match.'
Inspired by a love of astronomy and the wonderful images produced by the Hubble telescope. This is one of a continuing series of Halo works, each individual and unique.
Halo is completed in quality Winton Oils. Thick and heavy, straight from the tube. No brushes or knives...just fingers to place each point of colour on the base canvas.
The result is a deeply figured impasto work, with some crests and points standing well clear of the base canvas. Art can provide a tactile as well as visual thrill. Touch this. Stroke it. Use your own fingers to feel the way it was created.
Here, gold leaf has been used to subtly highlight the centre of action.
Oils. Gold Leaf.
