Moonscape | Mer Lunaires Series #2: Aphrodite
Pulling together lots of techniques and mixed media from the past few months and this one feels complete and well finished... even down the sides. Teal and marine blue acrylic on raw linen canvas with soft pastel and gold leaf detail. Also features areas of ripped watercolour paper for added depth and texture! Capturing both moon and oceans in one, she is the Goddess of the sea. Acrylic on canvas 60cm x60cm x3.5cm, unframed. Absolute stunner!
Mers Lunaires series which captures oceans of emotion within a moon. These pieces often start with words and floods of colour as part of the intuitive process of expressing feelings or thoughts in an abstract way. Layers of paint and different media are then built up to depict a release of energy or suppressed feelings which can range from trepidation to excitement.
Disclaimer: please note that whilst I try to accurately show the true colour and nature of these pieces, your screen or monitor may display differently. Paper pieces may have a slight cockling effect which is perfectly natural and expected from original pieces of mixed media art and should be embraced as such as they add character and authenticity to the pieces.
