Gold acrylic triangle with black

My latest 10 x 10 inch// 25 x 25 cm acrylic on canvas continues my study of singular-focused images against black negative space. This piece features a heavily textured triangle shape that is entirely golden.

Gold light

I took photos of in the light, and so the shine of the black acrylic paint allows the viewer to also see raised texture floating in the blackness. Here (below) is a shot with the brightness turned down, and the contrast brought up to maximum. The painting has a much sexier look with the adjustments- and I think I will (one day) invest in the services of a professional photographer to capture my work.

What a haunting image

The intent behind this piece was to depict the fading light of a distant dying star. The glow is homogeneous and the texture is as even as I could apply it. It reminds me of a ghostly apparition. Something emerging from the darkness that has an unknown origin.

If I could change something about this piece, it would be the lack of clean and sharp lines. I will work on honing my sculpture skills in the next piece. This style needs to be explored, and I have quite a few ideas I’m very excited to implement.

Thanks for stopping by, and please check in again soon to see what I have been working on.

Dark Navy Blue, Silver and Gold Metallic Abstract Acrylic on Canvas Outer Space Mood Art

My latest piece is a celestial depiction of a star collapsing into a black hole. The star is made of reams of silver and gold metallic paint. I used blending and pouring techniques to combine the dark and light areas.

The above shot was taken as the first layer of the piece dried. You can see the reflection of my light in the surface of the poured blue acrylic.

The endless abyss of blue holds a dark depth at its heart, and you can almost see the ghost-like human face that sits in the background like an echo.
