Created using texture medium, acrylic paint, and a hint of gold leaf.
With this piece I applied texture to create the initial layout of the landscape (I never use reference, it's all from my imagination) using layers of acrylic washes, building up depth to draw the eye into the landscape. Blending over the layers of washes creates a softness and atmosphere .
With all my pieces I love to give the sense of place and hopefulness .
Music plays a large part in my process ,along with centering myself in peace and calm.
