Painting: Acrylic, Gouache, Gesso, Pencil, Airbrush on Canvas, Paper, Wood, Other.
I created this painting after a trip to Tel Aiv. The Sunsets there are magnificent and I did a series of paintings of the sun going down. The sun goes down quickly there, in comparison to Ireland where it takes many hours. This painting started out as a watercolour, and in the process of working became acrylic on canvas. I tried to capture the vibrancy of the colours of the sunset, going from light into darkness, I used an impasto technique to build up layers of colour. I often put on the paint with my fingers when doing this.
My artistic influence for this painting would be Vincent Van Gogh.
