Green and Gold Tropical Abstract Landscape

My latest work is a beautiful, calming, abstract scene.

It is a mere 5 x 7 inches, and is entitled: “Tropical Misty Beach”. It is a haunting scene of a thick mist overcoming golden mountain ranges that can be seen peeking through. Gritty texture formed at the base of the mountain range add depth, and continue on to scatter into the deep blue sea.

As the texture settles into the sea, green colonies of coral are visible, as if they are poking out from the calm tropical sea’s surface. Perhaps for some, the white misty clouds moving across the landscape are more than condensation; their forms mimic spirits on a diaspora across the land. It’s something my imagination created, and I am interested in hearing what your imagination came up with in the comments section.

This piece really moved my sensibilities to feelings of calm and tranquility. My only regret is that I didn’t make this piece larger-perhaps 100 cm x 100 cm. Although I am unsure if bigger would have resulted in better for this abstract style.

Mountain Abstract Landscape Three Piece Series

During an experimental session of making art canvas, I tried my hand with using thin and lighter weight wood to build small 5 x 7 inch frames. My intention was to design something that had commercial applications; and right now in the online art world it is simple to make small art pieces that can be easily shipped at a minimal cost.

 

My three piece art series is a cerulean blue and gold set of abstract landscapes entitled:

01 Sea Breeze
02 Sea Breeze
03 Sea Breeze

The first is a rocky scene.

The second has points.

And the third is simply the sun, alone against the world. I used acrylic texturizer and pouring techniques to layer hues of blue over top other darker hues. The result is a backdrop with uneven colours that look like an abstract sky. “Stephanie’s sky” as I like to think of it.

Ocean Abstract Acrylic with Gold

My latest piece is entitled “Violent Weather”.

Size 11″ x 12″ // 28 cm x 30.5 cm

This abstract ocean landscape shows a violent storm wherein waves crash against each other amidst a dark and treacherous sky. Swirling patterns of dark storms lurk in the background, and as a result, the waves are exceptionally high.

At the peak of the tallest wave, water pierces through the barrier that separates the scene from calmer sunlit tranquility. The break in the barrier allows glimpses of majestic gold to cascade outward and spill into its new habitat.

The ground work for this piece was an acrylic pour within  which I used swirling techniques for the deep blue background. With the foundation laid, I used various hues of blue to form and shape the ocean wave.

Gold acrylic creates a beautiful contrast against blue, and is spread out as flecks across the piece. This piece is very beautiful, yet very abstract due to the risks taken to achieve the composition. I would really love to hear what YOU see in this very vivid piece.
