Artist's description:

Into the Deep
Mixed media on Canvas: acrylic, plaster, salt, metal leaf, 24k gold leaf, white gold leaf

Is it a macro or micro view? I like to play with this concept in my art, and this piece is an example of such - are you stood on the edge of the water getting your toes wet, or are you on the top of a cliff looking down from high above...

A detailed layering of glazes has created the depth in this painting. I have also added salt and plaster creating the rough and fizzing foam swirling around the rocks which shine and catch the light with my use of tarnished metal and gold leaf.

This piece was recently exhibited at the Torbay Guild of Artists Annual Exhibition and won first prize in the mixed or alternative media category.

Materials used:

Acrylic paint, plaster, gold leaf (yellow and white), gold coloured metal leaf, sea salt
