Abstract Painting "Mondegreen" Original Modern Art by Elizabeth Chapman

Acrylic on 40" x 48" x 1.5" canvas


Note the size of this canvas. Not your standard 36" x 48". I had these custom ordered as I was feeling like I needed a bit more heigth when working on the standard 36"H.  Also, I believe this helps as well in homes that have those high ceilings. Working with one of my favorite colors again as seen in "Dream Life". The horizontal band has been heavily layered with acrylic paints which is a contrast to the much lighter lower band of neutral whites. They were actually harder to create than it appears as those lighter tones are mixed from color.  Layers of washes were applied over drips and controlled drips. It's not really showing well, but the pops of red have a bit more orange to them.
