acrylic/mixed media on canvas
A unique, highly textured and atmospheric seascape. This painting measures 60x60cm x 3cm in depth.
Gold is the 79th Element in the periodic table. Gold is a chemical element with the symbol Au (from Latin: aurum) and atomic number 79, making it one of the higher atomic number elements that occur naturally. In its purest form, it is a bright, slightly reddish yellow, dense, soft, malleable, and ductile metal.
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, including pearl and gold mica flakes which sparkle when catching the light. I use the high-end 'Golden' brand of acrylic paints and mediums in all of my artworks.
