This piece is primarily focussed on rich cloud-like formations of depth and colour. The explosions of colour are akin to the gas like vapours of Jupiter and the creative processes of planets.
High grade/High pigment Oil on Cotton Primed/Stretched Canvas. Varnished with Gamblin Gamvar Varnish (this information is required for future care of the piece).
All my pieces are signed on the back so as not to ruin the image. Certificate of Authenticity can also be provided upon request free of charge as well as a special message if the piece is being brought as a gift.
Important notes about preparation and giving the buyer a lasting piece of work:
I have spent many years honing my craft and take the upmost care in making sure that my original oil pieces are designed to last. What does this mean? Well, many oil painters are not aware of the level of discipline it can take to create a stable environment for your Art to exist in. For example, the Canvas must not only be stretched to compensate for temperature adjustment but also primed several times and sanded before the application of any oil paint. This allows the colour to remain vibrant and not sink into the canvas and dull over the years. Another consideration is the pigment in the paint. For example, black oil colours take far longer to dry than lighter oil colours such as cadmium yellow. What this means is that if you put a lighter colour on top of a darker colour before it has dried, you run the risk of the Artwork cracking in the future. This can be avoided by properly blending colours and using a chemical called an alkyd, which speeds up drying time and helps the paint pigments to bind to one-another. Finally, when a piece is finished, some artists do not varnish it, or they varnish it too soon when the canvas is 'touch dry' but not fully dry beneath the surface. This can cause a multitude of problems in the years to come for the owner of the piece. With my Art, each and every one of these considerations is taken into place so that the Artworks can survive fully intact.
