Additional Information

“The Drop Off” derived from a very unmixed dirty pour. (paints added together and poured at the same time). Immediately after pouring this it took on a life of its own, an abstract impression of an aerial ocean scene unfolded before my eyes in a matter of seconds. Not at all what I had in mind to create, but I have learned to literary “go with the Flow” when something like this happens. There was a little manipulation to insure the general flow was in sync, but I must say, this painting really painted itself.  I saw some strong feature points in the top right side, where I then helped accentuate with some brush work, to really make those white lines even stronger. I think the negative space in this one really makes the drop off area the main feature, hence the title. “The Drop off” is where the reef ends and the deep water begins, it applies mainly to the reefs surrounding oceanic islands and atolls.

Inspired by our Great Barrier Reef. These Paintings can be made to order.

The Colourscape collection represents the effects of reactions between mixed mediums. The power of the chemistry between these pigments carried by different mediums, attracting or repelling each other sometimes results in beautiful formations.
Before being sealed, a single painting could have had multiple layers of work on it, ranging from the original pour, to sanding back looking for patterns under dried paint, rubbing in ink or more paint to stain or add colour, and in general working on and enhancing areas where possible.
These Formations are then preserved by a coating of a premium quality finish (resin, satin or matte Varnish) on a ready-to-hang, multi-directional board.
