Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

My aim with this acrylic painting is to express as much emotion as possible with as little line as possible. I applied several layers of acrylic on the canvas, trying to work as unconsciously as possible. After painting in the figures, I scraped paint away until I was happy with the color that shone through. I think the golden hue inside one of the figure's chest gives it a warm, glowing feel which helps to convey as sense of emotion. The colorful "rain" that falls around the lovers don't seem to touch the two - almost as if they are too lost in each other to notice their environment. Or perhaps the intensity of their emotion "repels" everything around them.

Whatever their story, I invite you to fill in the "blank slate" of this couple with your own story.
