Sailboats have strong geometric shapes. The combination of Fall Colors create a pattern that provided the basis for this painting, an abstract that attracts your attention with the strong horizontal lines, gradually revealing that it's actually a landscape featuring a sailboat.
My process includes creating an acrylic wash to inspire the background, followed by a digital painting done using many transparent layers. I adjust the order and transparency of the layers until I get just the effect that I want and freeze it into a file for printing.
Each print is made after you place your order, using archival inks on archival water color paper with a white border displaying the quality paper.
