Back to Realism

After spending some time with different forms I decided to create an old fashioned realism painting. Having taken numerous photographs of the Vancouver skyline of late I used that for inspiration.¬†Sunsets around the city have always been spectacular. The bright bold colours are used by a multitude of artists around the area. I decided to use a sunset taken during the smoggy forest fire season, as the colours were glowing in an eerily sci-fi orange. The medium I used was acrylic…. again. I decided to insert snowy mountains instead of the seasonal green for added effect. I mainly used a palette knife and brush. The frame was made using a standard angle saw and wood from home depot; with adhesive to ceil.
