WATER GRASSES

WATER GRASSES

36" x 60" Acrylic on Canvas

I enjoy the challenge of painting reflections on water.

54" x 54" Acrylic on Canvas

Intrigued by Nature's presentation of surprisingly vivid colors, and not having ever seen anything like this before, I decided to capture the image of odd algae shapes and reflections in Acrylic because it dries fast and allows me to glaze thereby adding depth and texture. My predominant color selection of  yellow oxide is unique to this painting, executed in my studio, while referencing my photographs. It's quite different from my other more photorealistic paintings because of the abstraction of the algae and because of its vibrancy.

Usually I use reference material to paint from but not for this one. The sky poured out of me onto the canvas.
