acrylic/mixed media on canvas


A unique, highly textured and atmospheric seascape. This painting measures 80x80cm x 3cm in depth.


This is a larger version of my painting Tranquillity. Rather than calling the new piece Tranquility 2 I searched for an alternative and found Ataraxia.

Ataraxia definition: a state of freedom from emotional disturbance and anxiety; tranquillity. And it is also a great word.


These paintings have a high degree of texture and as such appear very tactile. This has been created using acrylic/mixed media on canvas. A variety of acrylic mediums have been used in the creation of this painting. I use the high-end 'Golden' brand of acrylic paints and mediums in all of my artworks.
