Ascent of the Phoenix
acrylic/mixed media on canvas (including 24 carat gold leaf)
A unique, highly textured and atmospheric mountain-scape. The rising sun in 24 carat gold leaf against a deep red sky. This painting measures 60x60cm x 3cm in depth. These paintings have a high degree of texture and as such appear very tactile. A variety of acrylic mediums have been used in the creation of this painting, including pumice gel and crackle paste. I use the high-end 'Golden' brand of acrylic paints and mediums in all of my artworks.
