Additional Information

Against the Wind is a medium, landscape format, expressive artwork in acrylic and ink on deep sided artist quality, stretched cotton duck.  This painting features terns resting on a sandbar, surrounded by sea. The colours are primarily white, grey/blue, teal, ochre and black. This work is unframed but ready to hang. The canvas has raw, unpainted edges. The work is sealed with a satin sealer, giving a slight sheen without being heavy gloss.

The inspiration for this painting came from a wonderful photograph, taken by a friend at the beach on Kangaroo Island. I wanted to create something wild and free as the birds, showing their resilience in resting amongst the wild, wonders of nature.

The painting is expressive and textured completed in an abstract, contemporary style.  Paint was applied with large brushes and even my fingers.  I used broad, textured strokes, allowing the paint to show movement. I often use my fingers when painting as it allows me to get even closer to my paintings, intimately feeling the texture and lusciousness of the paint. Paint colours include white, blue, grey/blue, ochre, sand, teal with black ink to provide detail in the birds. The result is a contemporary approach to an impressionistic nature work.
