This painting has been created on a wooden cradle board. It is a mixed media piece comprising of Acrylic Paint, Graphite, Oil Pastel, and Ink, Coloured Pencil. The painting is 50cm by 50cm, has been sealed with three layers of satin varnish to protect the work and comes ready to hang.
'The Contradiction' has over 10 layers of paint contained within it. Building it up layer by layer creates depth, texture and history. The lumps and bumps on the surface make it almost tactile and the interplay of shape next to line and pencil next to paint creates interest and drama within the piece.
This painting is unframed but ready to hang. (You just have to decide where it's going to live!). It has been finished with a sealing coat of acrylic medium and then varnished with three layers of Satin Polymer Varnish with UVLS (Ultra-Violet Light Stabiliser) for protection. Use a dry, lint free, cloth for dusting.
