Artist's description:

Topher Essex Original Painting,

Title: "Shades of Grey"

Two 18x24x.75" painting on gallery wrapped (back stapled) stretched canvas.

(Total size 24 x 36 x .75)

Describe the process: " I probable do it the hardest way possible. The whole painting was done in b &w first and the colors are layered, dried and layered again. Over and over...After applying color I would spray it down so I would get the bleeding on the grey portion. them let dry and get more color. I did this several time until I was happy with the saturation. As far as the silk... I wanted some structural support for the texture so it would not crack, I used 1in x 4in strips of silk and a mix of texture paste and paint to get the texture. I know it is hard to see in the photo and its really hard to photograph but some of the texture is more than a 1/4 in thick with lots of detail, and it really looks nice. Anyway... one of these days Ill do a video.... Peace and thanks for your interest. Topher"

All canvas' sides will be painted black which puts emphasis on the front of the piece.

This is a one-of-a-kind, original painting. Every piece in my shop is 100% hand painted by me from start to finish.

Must see to appreciate. Many customers state their pieces are much nicer in person than online.
