Painting 'Dancing Droplets'
|36"x 48" acrylic and oil on canvas. Available at the Kurbatoff Gallery in Vancouver, BC. This is a new piece, completed over the Christmas holidays. It is a delicious mixture of soft, velvety textures from the airbrush, combined with thick, buttery dollops of oil paint overlaid on top. James was going for a more tactile feel in this painting and wanted chunky paint to dance on the surface in a lively way, contrasting against the calming, pastoral greens and greys of the background landscape. The overall effect James wanted for the viewer was a feeling of immersion in this scene.|
