Tropical Heat shows my love for nature and the warmer climates. I wanted to use bright summery colours to give a fresh and vibrant feel. This painting reminds me of the summer holidays and enjoying the outdoors and sunshine in those warmer months. Painted on heavy weight 13oz (440gsm) premium Indian cotton and stretched onto Canadian Pine stretcher bars. The painting is finished with coats of gloss varnish which will protect the painting and also enhanced the vibrancy of the colours. I paint all my sides so that the picture continues around the edge of the canvas this gives it a completed look. I do not leave my sides white. I hang a brass wire across the back which is attached to Brass D-Rings that are attached within the inside of the wood frame. I prefer this method as it makes the painting sit totally flush against your wall. If you would prefer a different hanging method please email me before purchasing to discuss. Comes with a certificate of authenticity. The painting comes with a certificate of authenticity.
