Water Song

Ahh...The sound of water, music to the ears, providing refreshment that quenches an inner thirst and restores a weary soul. Inspired by my love of the coast with alluring blue water and sandy white beaches where the mind is enticed to entertain thoughts of new hopes and dreams.

 WATER SONG, 24 x 30 x 1.5 in., acrylic mixed-media on canvas

Water Song was constructed using a background of paint mixed with sand, modeling paste relief texture and layers of paper applied with acrylic gel. Thin layers of paint in buff, raw sienna, shades of blue, aqua and yellow were applied to give the sand and water appearance. Raw Umber was scumbled on top to add depth to the textured relief. Painting wraps the edges of the 24" x 30" x 1.5" gallery wrap canvas and is signed with artist signature (sjh) on the front in the bottom right hand corner. It is sealed with an archival UV protective varnish, wired and ready to hang. No frame required.
