Beautiful work , made solely with a palette knife . Very expressive , energetic , colourful, soulful . The work can be seen as abstract , although the sea represented very realistically . The waves are almost sculpted with a palette knife , giving the work a 3 D effect . Usually seascapes are painted during a day or at the sunrise/ sunset , this work captures sea at its most mystical , at night . All the colours shimmer through with a moonlight . Very romantic , yet energetic painting . There is a large range of colours Prussian blues, dark greens , purples and turquoise blue . I never use black paint in my art , so the darker areas are actually Prussian blues and dark green, this creates a sense of depth when the painting catches the sunlight . Also the top left and bottom right of the artwork has been dusted with pure gold and bronze powder . Although cannot be clearly seen on a photograph or when viewed directly , the powder captures the light and reflects it , reminiscent of the shimmering reflection of the moonlight at night .
Very beautiful artwork , photographs hardly give it any justice .
The edges are painted over in dark green ( pearly black effect) so it can be hanged on its own without a frame . Very interesting modern piece , will benefit from a well lighted room
