180cm x 75cm | Heavy Cotton Canvas with Handmade Steel Frame
This painting took over 4 months to complete, it is on heavy cotton canvas starting with 3 blended layers of acrylic paint, 5 layers of resin and pigments with plenty of texture on the base to add to the different depths and dimensions of the painting. All of these layers make it a whopping 10kg!
My husband and a close friend, hand made the steel frame, as I wanted an industrial feel to the finished piece (I let the steel rust for 5 days to get just the right aged patina I was looking for). I named this painting Sunrise Bay as it reminds me of the volcanic island beaches on Tanna Island in Vanuatu. My daughter and I went there about 7 years ago and the scenery is just amazing.
