Palm Lotus

" Palm Lotus" is an acrylic painting on a triple primed canvas.

I prepared this surface in numerous levels. First doing my triple prime in a deeper value. The canvas measures 12" x 12" x 1 1/2". I added numerous archival papers, leafing and textiles to the surface and then added more pigment to create my teal varied surface. This required 3 layers and sanding. I then masked off my area for my blossoms and stems and added a medium to secure the edges. The negative space coloration is over the teal hues and reveals the lotus and interest. This color can best be characterized as transparent/translucent cream and variations of cream. The sides of the painting retain a teal and red coloring. Touches of red, red/orange pop through the surface plane.

Frame is included, overall size framed in a floater frame, 14 1/4" x 14 1/4"

Lots of tactile texture.
