Painting - Acrylic With Mica On Panel
Surf study uses mixed media and novel applications of conventional acrylic painting media to "reinvent" the structure of a common landscape painting theme. Seascapes are a popular painting subject. A talented conventional landscape (or seascape) painter will pay great attention to laying out and painting in the color subtleties and patterns of surf. Surf study approximates those same painted patterns using transparent layers of poured and swirled media over layers of clear reflective mica. The mica creates a frothy lamellar texture, while also reflecting the light through the transparent paint film in unexpected refractory patterns. The swirled transparent media have embedded color patterns arising from fluid dynamic effects within the paint that closely mimic the fluidity and movement of water. Overall Surf Study creates an intensely tactile "present" impression, with a paint film that uses the same play of light as roiling water to create an immediacy for the viewer. And it's pretty inexpensive too.
