“Romance Me” is inspired by Monet’s Waterlilies and is part of a series of this style of works, which many are sold. This painting is lovingly created through layers of work using only oil paints on gallery quality canvas, solid pine timber frames – wrapped painted white edges, Ready to hang. This is one of my favourite styles and I feel very peaceful when painting one like this.
Unlike my other work, this one does not have sand texture. The texture simply comes from the layers of oil paints, thick textured layers to create a mesmerising peaceful painting. Most of my work is a layering technique until I am totally satisfied with the balance and harmony of the chosen colours. There are colours under colours which come together with the merging of the top layers. This piece has little snippets of oil pastel which draws you eye to various interesting lines all over the work. It is a standout piece which will keep you and your family/friends immersed for many years.
