Cloudburst #27: New Life
Like the gentle explosion of birth, this piece resonates the vulnerability of the newborn as it bursts into life unguarded and untainted. Original artwork painted by British female abstract painter, Charlotte Keating. Acrylic, charcoal, soft pastel on raw linen cradled canvas in soothing hues of white, delicate blue, peach and iridescent silver.
These cloudbursts are a free flow form of expression, created with under layers of loosely written words and marks in pastel depicting raw emotion swiftly followed with soothing layers of acrylic applied with fingers and effervescing splatter effect to capture the rising bubbling effect of hopeful, peaceful happiness. Often riding the ups and down of emotion these quick sketches offer a window into the depths of the artist’s soul.
