A DEAR FRIEND OF MINE HAS COMMISSIONED ME TO MAKE A SMALL PAINTING, AS A GIFT, FOR HER FRIEND. HE COMES FROM HOLLAND BUT REALLY LOVES GREECE AND THE BLUE SEA, THUS THE THEME.

I CHOSE TO WORK WITH BLURRY  IMAGES BECAUSE I THINK THEY CAPTURE THE ESSENCE WITHOUT THE UNNECESSARY NOICE.

I WAS SO INSPIRED THAT I HAVE DESIDED TO CREATE A WHOLE SERIES OF SUCH PAINTINGS,

THIS IS NOT THE ACTUAL GIFT, BUT ANOTHER OF THE SAME PHILOSOPHY, THAT I PAINTED. 

FOR THIS PARTICULAR ONE, I USED PAINTING LAYERS AND IN BETWEEN POURED 'POURING MEDIUM'- WHICH IS A SELF-LEVELING TRANSPARENT LIQUID-TO CREATE 'DISTANCE' BETWEEN THE PAINTING LAYERS, SO WHEN I DREW SOMETHING ON TOP OF THE TRANSPARENT THICK LAYER, IT CASTED ITS SHADOW UNDERNEATH. THIS IS AN IDEA I PICKED UP FROM A VERY SWEET AND RENOWED ARTIST, MICHELE THEBERGE @THEMINDFULARTIST.COM. THE RESULT IS AN EXTRA GLOSSY, THICK, WITH 3D EFFECT LITTLE PAINTING. REALLY INTERESTING APPROACH WHICH I WILL DEFINATELY EXPLORE A BIT MORE.

 

THIS IS PART OF FUTURE SERIES. 

PHOTO MATERIAL CAME FROM PINTEREST. ALL PHOTO MATERIAL I USE FROM PINTEREST CAN BE FOUND IN MY PINTEREST BOARDS SO ONE CAN TRACE THEIR ORIGIN. THE PARTICULAR IS IN MY BOARD NAMED  'STONES'.

MATERIALS: MIXED-MEDIA ON WOODEN BOARD.

DIMENSION: 20 x 20 x 6 CM
