"INTRIGUE" Modern Art, Contemporary Abstract Painting, Elizabeth Chapman


Acrylic on 24" x 48" x 1.5" canvas

This painting has gold and silver metallic paint mixed in, accenting the reds and blues.  Unfortunately, the metallics don't photograph so well.  Fresh off the easel and just posted to my website.  I've got an order of large canvases from (best place ever) coming in next week and very excited about getting back to the plentiful play spaces. (try saying the last three words fast three times!)

I would call this painting an extended palette knife painting, as it began much like Iridescent or New Dawn and then evolved using a roller into much more.  I augmented the red with orange and the blue by  adding the green. In finalizing the painting I then used white and incorporated the metallics, gold and silver, last.

this would be amazing to stand in front of and see all that detailing, including the metallics. Wouldn't it be great if they photographed well.
