Island Dawn

Island Dawn

Piece description from the artist

Island Dawn is a very large example of the glittering light manipulating seascapes I've been creating using acrylic and mixed media. Acrylic media dry clear and glassy when not tinted with paint. This creates all sorts of possibilities, because it adds transparency to the palette along with more traditional colors and shades. I have been experimenting with different methods of applying acrylic to create deep agate like transparency effects. These novel techniques lend themselves to seascapes. When acrylic transparency effects are combined with spherical retroreflective elements, dimensional soft reflections from mica and mirror-like metal foil, the acrylic and media create dynamic and fluid renditions of water. The water in the painting moves with the viewer and the light.
