Star Blast in Acrylic on canvas

My latest work is a complex conception of iridescent orange against a dark turbulent sky.

The layers of colour in this piece were difficult to achieve. The richness of colour that I had hoped to achieve is not present in this piece, and to me it looks like it needs more paint.

The concept of this abstract piece is that of a solar flare against a dark space background.

An interesting technique with this piece is the use of fibrous tissue for the sun. I experimented with cotton fibers and molding paste as an adhesive to construct relief lines across the piece. The result is a “realness” to those sections that would not have been possible without creating a raised and textured surface.

Thanks for stopping by,
