Countdown Painting 2. 8″ x 8″ Standard (1″) edged canvas painted with Artist quality acrylic.
Winter brings snow and with it contrasts. The lights and darks are exaggerated, and a place you know well takes on a completely different character. This gate features in quite a few of my paintings. It doesn’t actually exist anymore, but I still paint it.
It is varnished for protection with a low sheen varnish.
The paint on this picture is built up in layers. It includes gold paint and my trademark swirls. Unfortunately the gold doesn’t show up very well in the photos. The paint is carried on down the sides of the canvas so you can get away without framing, but all of these little canvasases can look amazing in the right frame..
