Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.
This is an expressionist landscape whose composition benefits from an underlying grid. I also tilted the viewpoint upward, which results in visually-pleasing curves for the road, hedge and walls. Despite the cloudy day, the work is infused with color, and the brushwork is loose and energetic. The surface of my works is textured, partly from the way in which I prepare the surface, and partly due to the style of painting, with thick paint applied with energy. This is deliberate, as I want to create works in which the "hand of the artist" is evident. Soft lighting is important when hanging, enhancing the color and energy, and minimizing the surface texture. The sides are painted brown, and the work comes wired and ready to hang.
