The Thaw

Piece description from the artist

Sold original
Acrylic landscape, with different techniques used to create the landscape features. Some of the landscape was created using rakes to apply tinted gel media and create patterned textures. Other features (the stream and the background trees) were created by swirling fluid paint into transparent liquid media. The overall effect is similar to the marbled paper patterns in old books. The foreground tree was extruded using nearly transparent acrylic, and the foliage uses a combination of techniques. the added dimensionality gives the foreground tree a subtle presence and light.
