Textured acrylic in abstract portrait style
Title: Rock Slide, 2019. Stephanie Konu
My latest work is so difficult to describe.
To me: it is an abstract scene of a green field sloping upward against a backdrop of a glacier. Sunrays are shining against the hilltop which is pictured in the heart of the piece.
There are raised areas that create texture where multiple colours intersect. This intersection is pictured above. I love how the yellow field has these “legs” that creep into other colours without merging and losing vibrancy.
I like seeing that in my work! It makes me feel confident that I can repeat my style of painting across various conditions. I imagine being invited to Portugal for a month to paint large works for a private collection. I would paint 7 hours a day and do 50 pieces. The client would hang my artwork in a castle near the Mediterranean Sea…
Ah dreams take us away, don’t they?
For the time being, I will share my artwork with you.
It is an interesting piece. There are reflective fields where I used metallic paint, as well as iridescent violet embossing powder. I will take further photos of it as time goes by, (if it stays in my posession).
Thank you for stopping by to check out my work.
