For some time I have been attracted by velvet as a surface for my paintings. I use this beautiful surface and colours to create a juxtaposition between the lush velvet, the light it attracts and the mat or gloss of the acrylic paint which is sometimes applied traditionally with a brush and sometimes used  impasto to create more texture and depth.

 

The original painting, 'Lapis' is available in my paintings collection.

 

Where this image came from:

 

It was inspired by Delphi, the famous historical site of the Delphic Oracle in Greece. The painting catches different lighting in it's surface and plays with the eye as the depths seem to shift and blur.

 

The gorgeous ultramarine velvet  was painted thickly in layers and worked through with brush and nails etc to give it the ridges and furrows that vibrate with the smooth surface of the velvet.

 

The gold's play with each other to create a bright painting with hidden depths at a perfect size. I wanted an antique  look and feel to the work to invoke that feeling of antiquity and richness. The colours are a homage both to Greece and to Apollo, the Golden Sun god and protector of Delphi. This small painting carries a lot of weight!

 

I have included a few mock-ups of the print framed at different sizes and in various situations. This is a digital download file, frame and print is not included.

  • About this download

    About this digital download:

    A link to the image will be sent immediately upon payment.

    This is a large file at 300dpi which can print sharp up to H60 x W45cms H24 x W18" so will fit fine inside most standard paper sizes and frames with a border.

    Although you can print on to any paper, I recommend an archival fine art paper if you intend to use as an art print. An excellent choice would be Hahnemeuhle rag paper in a satin or vellum finish. https://www.hahnemuehle.com/en/digital-fineart.html

    Printing on paper between 200 and 300gms will work in most home printers and will give your print a firm place to fix. You can also use the image for a canvas, aluminium or other print.

    The image is set at the ratio of a generic tarot card size apx H12 x 7cm H5 x W3" and keeps this ratio up to the largest size so there will always be a border to your print which you can crop as you wish. Please see image of print with border.

    Any problems with your download or any questions....just ask via chat on webpage or email sand451@hotmail.com
