This painting in the 'Treasure Hunt' series is completed with a palette knife to depict an abstract beach background and brushwork on the figures for finer detail. I developed this style of abstracted impasto backgrounds in my early days of painting as I tried to loosen my background compositions to draw the eye to my main focal point being the figure/s in the foreground. I found that the palette knife abstraction vs brushstroke realism in additon to texture vs smooth surface painting created an interesting dynamic for my paintings to capture the viewers' attention.
This oil painting is framed with a simple black shadow box frame, signed on the front and ready to hang.
