Vanessa Seagreen - "Kingfisher"
Oil on Canvas
W: 770mm x H: 1030mm x D: 35mm
Approx. Weight: 2kg
This work is unframed
This is a finger painting done in oils. I applied the paint directly from the tube onto my fingers to the canvas, thus maintaining the brilliance of the colours. I experimented with the Impressionist Impasto style of painting for a Van Gogh effect, focusing on colour, texture and reflection yet maintaining detail of the Kingfisher. I managed to create a feathered effect of the birds feathers and captured it's flight as it emerged from the water with the fish.
What inspires me as an artist is nature, beauty and colour. In a country that is going through turmoil, I want the viewer of my art to be distracted from it, if only for a while.
